The Billecart family has been living in Mareuil-sur-Ay since the 16th century. When Nicolas Francois Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon in the early 1800s the two families' long held vineyards were married as well. In 1818 he founded the house of Billecart-Salmon which now stands as the oldest continuously family owned and operated house in Champagne.
This is a graceful, vinous cuvee from three different years, sourced from the best sites in the Champagne region. The Brut Reserve, a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier, is round and fresh on the palate. This is a light, finessed, elegant, very delicate and harmoniously fruity Brut with a stunningly intense, persistent, well-structured and clean finish.
