Billecart Salmon Champagne Cellars

Founded in 1818 by husband and wife Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon, the BILLECART-SALMON House is rich with history. For nearly two hundred years, the Billecart family has been handing down the secrets to making exceptional champagne from generation to generation. The Champagne House is special for many reasons, but one notable reason is that it is one of very few to remain Family owned.

The BILLECART-SALMON House covers around 50 hectares, and gets its grapes from a total of 170 hectares of land. Frequently cited for the quality of its vintages, the House pays particular attention to selecting the best grapes. 

At the foot of the Mareuil-sur-Aÿ hill, the family cultivates one hectare of Pinot Noir on a single, enclosed parcel. It is called Clos Saint Hilaire. The magic of the terroir combined with human skills have given rise to a wine which is particularly renowned for the complexity and rarity of its aromas. For all of its heirs, it represents an authentic treasure that they all must honour and preserve.

Harvest after harvest, the Family has forged close and courteous relationships with the winegrowers of the Champagne region. Here, everyone knows that they have a time-honoured savoir-faire. They all share the same determination to create a product unlike any other.

The champagnes of Maison Billecart-Salmon are above all created thanks to the knowledge of the men who rigorously cultivate an estate of 100 hectares, obtaining grapes from an area totalling 300 hectares across 40 crus of the Champagne region.
The majority of the grapes used for vinification come from a radius of 20km around Epernay, where the Grand Crus of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay co-exist, in the ethereal vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs.
