It all began in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon married, marking the founding of their champagne house. This was a family story from the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist, involved in the creation of the wines. Thus, over 7 generations, each family member has endeavoured to continue the family tradition, true to the same motto: ” Give priority to quality, strive for excellence ” .
Maison Billecart-Salmon’s champagnes are created mainly thanks to the knowledge of the men who rigorously cultivate a 100-hectare estate and obtain grapes from a total of 300 hectares from 40 crus in Champagne. The majority of the grapes used for winemaking come from within a 20 km radius of Epernay, where the Grand Crus of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay coexist, in the ethereal vineyards of the Montagne de Reims, the Vallée de la Marne and the Côte des Blancs .
