Champagne Billecart-Salmon

Billecart-Salmon, a medium-size Champagne House in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, was founded in 1818 by the original owners Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon who combined their names on marriage to create the brand. It is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to remain family owned. Billecart-Salmon is renowned for the quality of its delicate Brut Rose, whilst the Brut Reserve (a blend of three vintages) is a beautifully harmonious and balanced wine. All have the ability to age very well.

Colour: The colour is of a shining, delicate golden hue. The effervescent is finely chiselled and wonderfully precise. Nose:Rich while maintaining a clear freshness , the nose releases fruity (stone fruit) and floral (acacia blossom and rose petal) scents. During aeration, the bouquet becomes more complex, through notes of lightly roasted flaked almonds, frangipane and candied mandarin peel. Palate: The palate delights with its balance, its tension and its minerality. Fruity scents (fresh yellow raspberry, quince, fig) mingle with gourmet notes of honey biscuits, finger lime and licorice and Royal Ann cherry. A subtle combination of power and precision draw out to a finish that releases notes of toast and bergamot.
Sole in lemon butter or a veal chop with girolle mushrooms are refined pairings for this exceptional champagne.
