Husband and wife team Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon founded their Champagne House in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, near Epernay in 1818. Seven generations later, operations are led by Mathieu Roland-Billecart, with the support of Jean, Francois and Antoine Roland-Billecart. The family endeavours to preserve the best of their ancestral knowledge and traditions, while incorporating some of today’s modern technology. Select grapes are put through one of the last existing traditional presses in the region to produce their signature collection of delicate, fresh wines that are a true reflection of their distinct terroir.

A fine straw-gold colour with great finesse of bubble flow and mousse. Joyful aromas of apple blossom and ripe pear. A full, defined palate demonstrates richness that will help to give this a long life in the cellar.
NV Brut Rosé
This wine is made up of the following: 40% Chardonnay sourced from the best Crus in the region, 30% Pinot Noir from the Montage de Reims and the Grande Vallée de la Marne and 30% Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne and the southern slopes of Epernay. This cuvee uses 40% reserve wines, is vinified in stainless steel, undergoes malolactic fermentation and ages on its lees for 36 months.
With its subtle and gourmet aromas, this cuvée is a reference point amongst rosé champagnes. It will be a pleasant companion to your happiest moments with its sparkling colour, its amazing finesse and its great intensity.
94 Points, James Suckling
A gorgeous rosé Champagne with sliced strawberries, orange peel and hints of cream and pie crust. Medium body, tight and integrated tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Tangy acidity. The texture shows a fine bead and lightness. Long and intense. Drink now.
NV Blanc de Blancs
The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glints of its gold color. A cuvée that will surprise you with its pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of fruits of white flesh. The creamy sensation of the bubble associated to aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.
95 Points, James Suckling
Really attractive ripe and pure chardonnay sourced from the Côte de Blancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Chouilly and Mesnil-sur-Oger. This has bright ripe peaches and nectarines in addition to mangoes, lemons and – not to mention some background chalky aromas. The palate's a riot of fleshy and flavorsome chardonnay fruit with a helping of stone fruits and another of green mango flavors and deeper-set citrus zest. Seamless balance flows to the finish. Drink now. Superb!
