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 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. On a never-ending quest for excellence, the BILLECART-SALMON House has always used modern and innovative technology to constantly improve the quality of its champagne. Here, the most talented cellar masters have always followed one after the other. They ensure the conformity of the flavours and finesse of the blends. The bottles are then aged in a vast network of cellars, dating back to the 17th and 19th centuries. Indifferent to fleeting trends, yet in tune with its era, the BILLECART-SALMON House has always taken care to ensure that it merits the praises of sommeliers, great chefs, and genuine taste connoisseurs. Today, it is not without a certain pride that the House, independent since its founding, has assigned the seventh generation of enthusiasts to its helm ; an enthusiasm that the family members strive today to spread throughout the world.
