List of products by brand Billecart Salmon

It all began in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon founded a Champagne House that was above all conscious of the excellence of its wines. Since then, every member of the Billecart family has been committed to perpetuate the family tradition through standing by the immutable oath: ‘Give priority to quality, strive for excellence’. Proof of this eternal demand: the family garden at the BILLECART-SALMON estate. 

From the XVII century, Pierre Billecart, wine maker and ancestor of Nicolas François Billecart, was hailed by King Louis XIII who authorised him to create his own coat of arms. Thus, when the champagne House was born in 1818 from union of the Billecart family to the Salmon family, his descendants proudly reinstated them. “Blue inside a gold chevron with three bunches of grapes lined up along the top above a greyhound standing to attention”: this coat of arms decorated the old barrels of the BILLECART-SALMON House, not so long ago. In 1999, the cuvée Nicolas François Billecart 1959 was chosen “Champagne of the Millennium” by a committee of experts at a blind tasting session involving 150 vintages from the most illustrious champagne producers, organised in Stockholm by Richard Juhlin, a great champagne specialist. The 1961 vintage, for its part, came second. In 2011, to celebrate 50 years of this exceptional vintage and to delight the palates of great champagne enthusiasts, an exclusive sale of a limited series of 1961 vintage was released.
