Billecart-Salmon

Founded in 1818 by Nicolas François Billecart and his spouse Elizabeth Salmon in Mareuil-sur-Ay, this is one of the few houses that have remained in the same family. Seven generations on, the house is led by the very talented Francois Roland-Billecart. They espouse three principal aims: “finesse, balance and elegance” and the complete range of wines is testament to this.

 

   

A magnum of Billecart-Salmon Brut Champagne 1959, voted the unanimous winner in a competition to find the best among a group of 150 of the 20th century’s greatest Champagnes, sold at Sotheby’s for £3,300.

Serena Sutcliffe MW, Head of Sotheby’s International Wine Department, who was one of the judges at the three-day event to taste the 150 Champagnes held in Stockholm, described her role as a “task of pure joy”. The Billecart-Salmon Cuvée Nicolas-François 1959, the winner of the event, was given an outstanding 101 marks from Serena. She described it as “very pale with a greenish tinge. The ultimate ‘divine hedgerows’ bouquet – like coming home. This is it! Creamy delicacy and yet huge flavour (this must be the Holy Grail for which all Champagne blenders search). Mega dimension. Great depth and yet finesse. Perfect composition. Remains fabulous in the glass.”

Only a tiny amount of the historic 1959 vintage Champagne is left in Billecart-Salmon’s cellars and only one magnum was released for the auction, making it a unique opportunity to acquire a magnum of this awe-inspiring Champagne.
