Since its creation in 1818 by the spouses Elisabeth Salmon and Nicolas-François Billecart, the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House has remained independent, preserving all of its know-how and the high quality of its vintages for 7 generations.
The Billecart-Salmon vineyard stretches from the Côte des Blancs to the Montagne de Reims and covers almost 100 hectares. The vines are cultivated and cared for in the traditional manner in order to get as close to the authentic fruit as possible and to reflect the quality of the Champagne region’s terroir.
Vinification and ageing
73% of the Grands Crus and Premiers Crus are used in the production of this 2009 Vintage. The blend of this Vintage combines 3 unique characteristics of the Champagne terroir, namely the body and power of the Pinot Noir (40%), the finesse of the Chardonnay (33%) and the delicate white fruit notes of the Pinot Meunier (27%).
The Vintage 2009 by the Billecart-Salmon Champagne House is elaborated and aged for 9 years in the coolness of the chalk cellars.
Finely effervescent, the golden yellow colour has beautiful golden reflections.
The fresh, gourmet nose has a rich palette of flavours, blending lemony aromas with pastry and butter notes.
Charming and structured, the mouth is taut and balanced. The finish, persistent and full of finesse, highlights the strong ageing potential of this Vintage 2009.
Food and wine pairing
