The word "Billecart" holds a special place in the hearts of Champagne aficionados. Brought into the United States by an importer known for hand-selecting accounts, even being able to offer "Billy Bubbles" carries a certain badge of merit. But it's more than just the chase that makes Billecart special… what's in the bottle more than justifies the reputation of this Champagne house.
Founded in 1818, and now under the seventh consecutive generation of family ownership and winemaking guidance, Billecart is known primarily for its elegance and balance (especially in rosé). The house style always includes a three-vintage blend with the cuvée built for consistency from release to release (the basic formula has remained unchanged since 1945). Utilizing mostly Grand Cru vineyards - largely centered around Épernay - and blending all three of the traditional Champagne grapes, the winemaking team has an enviable spice rack at their disposal. The result is a product which one notable colleague refers to as "lingerie for the mouth." In one of the world's truly unique wine regions, Billecart-Salmon continues to set itself apart.
Current Offerings From Billecart-Salmon:

NV Billecart-Salmon Brut Rose ChampagneThe day is finally here! We have pink 'Billy bubbles' in stock once again! We tasted this insider favorite in a lineup of top Champagne houses and fought over who was taking the rest home. If you're looking for a bottle of 'cult' bubbles that flaunts rarity and pedigree, this belongs in your glass.(2)
