Champagne Billecart-Salmon


It all began in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon founded a Champagne House that was above all conscious of the excellence of its wines, Champagne Billecart-Salmon! Since then, every member of the Billecart-Salmon family has been committed to perpetuate the family tradition through standing by the immutable oath: ‘Give priority to quality, strive for excellence’.

Of the twenty three 3 Star Michelin restaurants in France, twenty one serve Billecart-Salmon Champagne.

“The art of crafting elegant, graceful champagne requires the most exacting skill… The mark of Billecart is made not by the heavy footfall of concentration, power and presence, but rather by the fairy touch of delicacy and crystal-clear fidelity. Every one of it’s dozen cuvees articulately speaks the house philosophy of respecting the integrity of the fruit, freshness and acidity…Such elegant delicacy places Billecart dizzyingly high among Champagne’s finest houses.” – Tyson Stelzer, Renowned Champagne Writer and Published Author

It is a wonderful success story of a hard-working family who have continued to follow the dream and high standards set by their ancestors Nicolas  and Elisabeth. The couple were given a parcel of land, close to the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Ay in the heart of Champagne, as a wedding gift by the Salmon family. They decided to focus on producing top end sparkling champagnes. The House is now run by the seventh generation of the family, brothers François Roland Billecart and Antoine Roland Billecart. Their father Jean Roland Billecart, now 90 and with the experience of over 70 vintages under his belt, is still involved with the company.
