Billecart-Salmon

The Billecart-Salmon House is the embodiment of these rare family businesses who have constantly strived to build the legend of Champagne. The family's independence has helped them to maintain a sense of continuity in the concoction of their champagnes with as their watchwords: finesse, balance and elegance. Each generation has endeavoured to propel the art of wine-growing into modern world, while remaining firmly rooted in almost two centuries experience.

  • Dom Peri doesn't really do it for me, either.  Nothing made by Moet et Chandon has really wowed me, in France or here.  For less money, I'll take a P-J Belle Epoque.  Or Taittinger, or Billecart-Salmon, or a bunch of things.  For way less, Pierre Paillard (grower stuff) wowed me recently. Speaking of underwhelming wines, I had two bottles of Roa...

  • Try something like Krug Grande Cuvee in comparison to another tete de cuvee that is not oak fermented. I note a huge difference between Krug Grande Cuvee and its competitors from Moet, for example. Billecart-Salmon's excellent "Sous Bois" NV bottle also is quite good, at least when I tasted it. Vilmart is another option with oak fermentation. Th... Read More

  • Hola!Following a recent trip to Epernay and the Mercier House where they have the worlds largest oak barrel I was wondering how different champagne would have been before the introduction of stainless steel or concrete vats? I am assuming that the wines were pressed and stored in oak (or wood of some sort) which would presumably had a fairly sig... Read More

  • "Just like that, he's gone" So are all the guests and most ... We started with bubbles. The Billecart Salmon Brut Rosé was excellent. We followed that with the Under The Wire Sparkling Zinfandel Rosé but I felt it suffered stylistically alongside the Champagne. Another wine for another time. Then came some whites. I popped a magnum of '99 Maya... Read More

  • Being a huge fan of the Rex Cab (as a "great-value, lots-of-bang-for-your-buck" wine) and mildly fond of their Merlot and Pinot Noir, I was hoping that their Sauvignon Blanc would be of comparable quality ... but all I can say is, "Bleah." Harsh, burning, and nearly flavorless, with next to nothing in the bouquet -- not at all like the Rex reds.... Read More

  • Billecart-Salmon Brut Ros Champagne NV

    Snoothrank:

    This rose has a really interesting pale orange colour and a fine bead. It really is very dry yet delicate, with notes of peach and strawberry and maybe a little minerality - all driven by a strong acidity that really left my mouth watering. This wine has a lot of outstanding reviews and I enjoyed it. That said, I personally didn't feel that it n... Read More
