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

The NV Brut Reserve is a tasty, non-vintage Champagne. Orchard fruit, lime, white flowers and white pepper. Silky, creamy and exceptionally polished, the Brut Reserve is a total charmer. All the elements are so well balanced. This release is based on 2019. Dosage is 6.10 grams per liter. Disgorged: 4th quarter 2022. Drinking range: 2023 - 2029 Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (May 2023)

40% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. The 2018 base Brut Reserve is showing plenty of character from the complex reserve wine system, heightening what is still a fairly youthful base. There's richness from roasted apples and smoky honey, freshness from raspberry and clean, integrated acidity. Some toffee and brazil nut richness, too. It's an impressive assembly, feeling if anything slightly more precise and harmonious than previous iterations. Tom Hewson Rating: 91 Tim Atkin MW, www.timatkin.com (Dec 2022)

Champagne Billecart Salmon

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.
