Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Champagnes Ay France
Billecart Salmon is one of the most generous Champagne, a harmonious and balanced wine, the achievement of immense personal care throughout the vinification and élevage under traditional chalk cellars. Parcels of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier, across several different vintages from the best vineyards along La Rivière Marne, are fashioned into a timeless and refined Cuvée which has remained unchanged since 1945. Elegance and a full vinous palate, an exquisite wine that's just right for every one of life's opportune occasions.
Billecart Salmon is one of the last familial Houses of Champagne, all the wines are marked by the seal of excellence. The story begins with the wedding of Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon. The marriage lead to the founding of the distinguished Champagne House of Billecart-Salmon, established 1818 at Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Two centuries later, the seventh generation of the family still manages the company and oversees the crafting of each individual bottle, maintaining the legend of the Spirit of Champagne. The original love of the founders, lives on through the devoted viticulture, a philosophy which has been cultivated around three principal values, elegance, balance and finesse.
Honeyed in colour, distinct for the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and persistent mousse. Honeyed bouquet, maturation has not robbed it of an amazing floral freshness, Billecart Salmon exhibits lovely aromas of pink stonefruits, boulanger and brioche. Evolved, candied citrus, almonds, nougat and Nice biscuit, exemplary for its sophistication, generous in its elocution of Champagne richness, refined for its lasting impressions of cherry ripeness and juicy pear.
