Established in 1818 through the marriage of Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon, Billecart-Salmon stands as the oldest continuously family-owned Champagne House. Nestled in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, a quaint village near Epernay, the House began its journey with the unwavering dedication of its founders and Elisabeth's brother, Louis Salmon, a fervent oenologist.

For over two centuries, Billecart-Salmon has cultivated a distinguished expertise, crafting fine, elegant, and balanced Champagnes. The commitment to excellence transcends generations, with each heir diligently upholding the family tradition. Currently guided by the seventh generation, Mathieu Roland-Billecart, the family remains steadfast in their pursuit of quality, embracing the enduring motto: "give priority to quality, strive for excellence."

 

"The NV Champagne Brut Rose is an attractive pale salmon hue, with a fresh perfume of wild strawberry, ripe peach, white and red flowers, a hint of tropical fruit, and grapefruit. The palate is rounded, with fruit up front and through the mid-palate, and it has a silky and fresh lift. There is a wonderful ease and drinkability to this wine, which delivers balance and finesse."

-Jeb Dunnuck, 94 Points

"Attractive salmon color with aromas of dried strawberries and lemons, as well as hints of flowers. Full-bodied with tight tension from the fine phenolics that run through the palate. Hints of white pepper, peaches and sliced green strawberries with some candied lemons, too. Always an excellent bottle. 40% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 30% pinot meunier. Drink now."

-James Suckling, 93 Points

"The Brut Rosé is a fresh and elegant Rosé Champagne, a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, and Pinot Noir vinified as red wine. Radiant color with graceful effervescence, a persistent mousse, and fine bubbles rising slowly in the glass. Subtle and fine aromas leading to an expressive red berry flavor with citrus zest. Creamy and smooth on the palate, evolving to strawberries notes and a raspberry finish. Light, balanced, and precise. The best pairing for any happy occasion! Pairs greatly with fine charcuterie, sushi, grilled salmon, or a langoustine carpaccio. It will also enhance lightly sweetened red berry desserts with an acidic crunch."
