The family House of Billecart Salmon is one of the few remaining Champagne houses to be owned by the original founding family and was established in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart. They continue to make rich and compex wines from their series of small family holdings throughout the Marne and Montagne de Reims regions.

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.

The pink colour is derived from the addition of 7% red wine added to the blend before the second fermentation in bottle. Delicate salmon pink colour. A complex nose of crushed strawberry and herbal raspberry, balanced with notes of toasted brioche and nougat.
A perfect pairing with seafood, caviar and roast chicken to name but a few. Our favourite is smoked salmon Blini's - easy on the horseradish!
Fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of between 10-11°C over a period of one month, with the addition of 6% red wine to the final blend. 3 years ageing on lees.
