What to expect


"Billecart’s enchanting Brut Réserve upholds its aspiration of impressive freshness and elegance, even in the presence of impressive levels of reserve wines, a generous 45% of the blend. This cuvée is a captivating contradiction, dressing one of Champagne’s higher representations of meunier in one of the most delicate and graceful of attires. It glides onto the stage and sings with the pristine signature of the house, energised by the red apple and red berry fruits of meunier, with a breathtakingly re ned melody of pure lemon zest, in a dazzling display of elegant, soft, crystalline chalk minerality and understated, fragrant elegance. Lees age furnishes subtle brioche and almond notes, while meunier lends supple approachability, without for a moment dipping its gaze from purity and definition, concluding with fresh, bright acidity, well-integrated dosage, gentle phenolic presence, good persistence and fine chalk mineral drive. Classic Billecart."

About the house 

About the house 


Serving Suggestion

One of the leading families of Champagne, this medium sized, high quality domain is one to be admired. Billecart-Salmon (Pronounced beel-kahr sahl-moh) have a fresh, clean and elegant style. They champion the use of the meunier grape which is often added to other cuvees without fanfare in other houses. The absolutely pristine wine making facilities located in Mareuil-Sur-Aÿ are overseen by multiple generations of the family as well as chef winemaker Francois Domi. The house purposely ferments at a lower temperature elongating the ferment to weeks and not days as can be standard in champagne, which helps capture the pristine nature of the fruit. Every step of the wine making process at the house is artful, right down to the precision of the dosage which is unique for every disgorgement conducted in batches.
