The Billecart family has been living in Mareuil-sur-Ay since the 16th Century, but when Nicolas François Billecart married Elisabeth Salmon in the early 1800s, and their two vineyards were combined together, the nascent seed of Billecart-Salmon was born. Now onto the seventh generation, Billecart-Salmon is in the hands of Antoine & François Roland-Billecart, and the renowned ‘chef de cave’ François Domi.
Billecart-Salmon owns a total of 15 hectares of vineyards. Eleven of these are in the Vallée de la Marne split between 4ha of Grand Cru in Ay and Premier Cru in Mareuil-sur-Ay and 7ha in the village of Damery. In the Côtes des Blancs the family owns 4ha of Grand Cru vineyards in the villages of Chouilly, Avize and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger.
This is always a big crowd favorite at Bar Boulud, and perfect for the springtime. Please join us this in celebration with a glass of Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé.
