Founded in 1818, Billecart-Salmon is a medium-size Champagne House in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. The old family-run champagne house was founded by Nicolas-François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon and remains family-owned until this day for over 200 years. The house owns 30 hectares of vineyards, including the amazing Le Clos Saint Hilaire, and it also sources a further 140 hectares of grapes from 35 different sites in which they are all either Grand Cru or Premier Cru quality grapes. Pinot Noir comes from the Montagne de Reims, Chardonnay from the Côtes de Blancs, and the Pinot Meunier from the Marne Valley. One of its top cuvees is Cuvée Nicolas-François Billecart which was created in 1964 as a tribute to the house’s founder. Only the best Grand Cru grapes are used in this prestige cuvee which presents exceptional finesse and harmonious quality which also comes with long cellaring potential.

[...] In terms of sophistication, elegance and unrivalled precision, this is the wine to buy. I raved about the 2007 Cuvée Louis and this wine is made in a similar vein. This is a sensational vintage for Billecart and NF will outlive Louis given that it has more horsepower under the bonnet. [...] I am in complete awe as to how these wines are so fine and so laser-sighted in their youth. NF is a class apart."
