I am sure you know by now that I am a besotted Billecart fan. This small house is one of the finest producers of Champagne, full stop. Brut Reserve is one of the most reliable and over-delivering (flavour-wise) wines on the shelves today. It is creamy, smooth, uplifting and guaranteed to brighten your day. You simply cannot go wrong with this spectacular Champagne in your glass. Everyone needs a banker - a wine that will always delight and amaze the drinker - this wine does this and more Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Apr 2010)

Lots of elegance in the delicate, Pinot-Meunier influenced fruitiness of the basic cuvée. We recommend this over and above many of the better known Grande-Marques.L&S
Plenty of ripe strawberries and wild raspberries on the nose here. Really attractive and vibrant in the mouth with fresh wild strawberries. It also shows a fleshy, fresh-fruit texture. Drink now. Rating: 91 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com (Aug 2018)
Beefy, savoury nose. Again, quite frothy on the palate. Excellent balance of acidity and fruit. Very clean and precise. Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jun 2017)
Founded by Nicolas-Francois Billecart in 1818, and situated in the village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, this remains one of the few family owned businesses in Champagne. the family has 100% control of production. They obtain their grapes from an area covering 220 hectares, the majority of which come from in and around the region of Épernay, and own a total of 15 hectares themselves. Today the estate is run by François and Antoine Roland-Billecart, the 6th generation of the family to lead the independent House, still with the support of their father Jean Roland-Billecart.
