The Maison de Champagne Billecart-Salmon, founded in 1818 in Mareuil-sur-Ay, is rich in its history. At every stage of its existence, the men at the head of the Maison Billecart-Salmon have been able to innovate and keep their champagne up-to-date. Indeed, they have been able to raise the quality of their champagne production to an extremely high level and the Maison Billecart-Salmon now offers a complete and sophisticated range. In 2018, the Maison celebrated its 200 years of independence and savoir-faire.

If the wine Brut Réserve, awarded "Best Brut in the World" by the famous guide Decanter, is a beautiful classic, the cuvée Brut Nature is remarkable for its purity and elegance. The champagne Brut Sous Bois displays an impressive technical mastery with a very precise use of the oak barrel. The Vintage is a more mature and powerful champagne, as is the Brut Rosé, the emblematic cuvée of the house, which is very fruity and dense.
