In the heart of Champagne, situated in the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, is a Champagne house that has been family-owned for 200 years.

It all began in 1818 when Nicolas Francois 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.

This garden was redesigned in 1926 in a French style under the guidance of Charles Roland-Billecart. The idea of his project was to create a garden at the heart of the village, enclosed by walls surrounded by lime trees primed in to a canopy, with boxwood embroidery, lawns and flowerbeds.

The garden was kept in this style until 1999, when a storm destroyed the remaining old trees, leaving only one chestnut tree soon to be 200 years old. Francois Roland-Billecart, therefore decided to enlarge his grandfather's garden by adjoining the part of it that had stayed out of sight. He entrusted this project to his sister Véronique Roland-Billecart.

From the foundation of the House of BILLECART-SALMON in 1818 until now, each generation has invested in the preservation of this garden. Furthermore the family has thrown itself in to modernising the art of their wine making descended from nearly two centuries of experience.

With a background of the best champenois tradition, the House of BILLECART-SALMON sways between excellence and demand, keen to convey their love of champagne whilst cultivating a certain amount of mystery.

The Brut Réserve is a light, fine and harmonious champagne. Its blend is made with Pinot Noir Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region.

Tasting Notes

This cuvée, with reflections of straw yellow, stands out by the finesse of its slowly rising bubbles and its persistent and abounding mousse. Maturity touched with floral freshness for this cuvée that breathes aromas of fresh fruit and ripe pears. A full and accurate flavour combined with a fine freshness and a rich bouquet bear witness to the ageing of this cuvée in the House's traditional cellars.
