The Billecart family has been living in Mareuil-sur-Ay since the 16th century. When Nicolas Francois Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon in the early 1800s, the two families’ long-held vineyards were married as well. This led to Nicolas’ decision to leave his law practice and take over the family wine estate. In 1818 he founded the house of Billecart-Salmon which now stands as the oldest continuously family owned and operated house in Champagne. It is currently managed by the seventh generation, brothers Francois and Antoine Roland-Billecart. The cellars are in the hands of renowned “chef de cave” Francois Domi. Truly one of the world best Champagne houses we’re honored to be able to host a tasting of Billecart’s amazing Champagne. No matter if you’re buying for your own cellar or getting ready for Holiday gift giving an opportunity to taste these Champagnes is not to be missing.

“The Billecart-Salmon house style is defined by class, elegance, and a sublime freshness of the wines.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media
