Billecart Salmon Champagnes
Founded in 1818 the Billecart family has lived in Mareuil-sur-A since the mid-sixteenth century. The House was established when Nicolas-Franois Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon. The Grande Marque quickly established an international reputation with a US subsidiary set up in the early 1840s. The US agency, however, handled the business badly and cost the House a small fortune, which set the company back for many years. Russia became the companys major export market but this trade, too, collapsed after the 1917 revolution. Eight years later the decision was made to sell off the firms vineyards and the money raised was invested in the winery and cellars.
The fifth generation of the family still own and run the company. The style of House less dosage and quality fruit longer ageing on the lees.
