Details

Founded in 1818 this house is most famous for this wine. 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A bone-dry but delicious wine, with red fruits and a beautiful onion-skin colour that just hints at rosé. Lovely acidity completes the serious and highly enjoyable wine." 91 points Stephen Tanzer.

If you like Champagne at all, you'll love this one. It is elegant and focused with a fine perlage, light salmon color, creamy texture and lingering finish. The house is now headed by Francois Billecart, the seventh generation of family owners.

Francois maintains scrupulous standards for his Champagnes, a follower of his forebears' motto: "Tradition is meaningless without great quality." The house style is light and elegant, with emphasis on finesse rather than power. Clean, crisp acidity is a hallmark of Billecart-Salmon. The secret for this is that about 8% still red Pinot Noir from their own vineyard in Mareuil sur Ay is added to the blend, making for a very elegant and subtle wine.
