Since its founding in 1818, by Nicolas François Billecart and his wife Elisabeth Salmon, the BILLECART-SALMON House, situated in Mareuil-sur-Aӱ, remains independent to this day. The House is now run by the seventh generation who continues to produce champagnes of the highest quality.

This Chardonnay cuvee has been elaborated from the five grand cru vineyards of the Cote des Blancs: Avize, Chouilly, Cramant, Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger. It is a blend of two different years revealing the special quality of the Chardonnay.

Appearance: The fine mousse of delicate bubbles elegantly accompanies the glint of its gold colour.

Aroma: A cuvee that will surprise you with its pure intensity of dry fruits aromas, almonds and fresh hazelnuts mixed with those of fruits of white flesh.

Palate: The creamy sensation of the bubble associated to aromas of buttered brioche and mineral aromas. Persistent finish with a fresh and elegant sweetness.

Serving: This great bottle will make a perfect marriage with caviar or fine oysters but also with grilled fish and seafood.
