Founded in 1818, Billecart-Salmon is the oldest, family-owned house in Champagne. Best known for their Brut Rose that is a staple of top restaurants around the world, these champagnes represent a vinous style that is both powerful and elegant at the same time.
Blanc de Blanc NV ($69.95): Made from 100% chardonnay from only Grand Cru vineyards, this may be the house’s best champagne in the NV range. Notes of biscuits, brioche, candied citrus all backed by a rich palate, and a mineral-laden, refreshing finish.
Demi-Sec NV ($49.99): Made from 40% pinot meunier, 30% pinot noir and 30% chardonnay, this is layered, off-dry, creamy, and decadent, with notes of toasted nuts and orchard fruits.
Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart 1999 ($99.99): The best value in tete de cuvee champagne, this cuvee is drinking at its peak.
