The Winery

Billecart-Salmon

Founded in 1818 by Nicolas François Billecart and his wife Elisabeth Salmon, this champagne house is one of the oldest operated family-ran entities in the region. Now in their seventh generation, quality has yet to take a dive and their growth has reached 30 hectares of vineyards, 4 of which are Grand Cru in the villages of Choully, Avize and Le Mesnil. They pride themselves on elegant and feminine Champagnes with a strong acidic backbone and subtle alcohol which are primarily due to the philosophy of early harvesting.
