If you read my posts, it's no secret I really enjoy their Rosé Champagne. Always consistently great and delicious. On the nose; spring florals, sea spray, chalky minerals, tangerine, black cherry, raspberry, watermelon & strawberries. On the palate; tangerine, black cherry, raspberry, watermelon & strawberries, saline, beautiful sticky palate chalkiness, pink roses, baguette, amazing minerality, finish and acidity. Photos of; their house, vineyard and cellar. Producer history and notes...Bilecart was founded in 1818, by husband and wife Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon. For nearly two hundred years, the Billecart family has been making exceptional champagne. Today the House remains independent and is run by the family’s seventh generation under François Roland-Billecart. The Billecart-Salmon House covers around 50 hectares, and gets its grapes from a total of 170 hectares of land. Meaning...they also have a number of great relationships with grape growers. At the foot of the Mareuil-sur-Aÿ hill, the Billecart-Salmon family cultivates one hectare of Pinot Noir on a single, enclosed parcel; the Clos Saint Hilaire. Billecart uses modern and innovative technology to constantly improve the quality of its champagne. From the Côte des Blancs to the Reims Mountain and the right bank of the Marne River are some of the greatest sites for Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. These grapes/sites are all used to make beautiful Billecart champagnes.
