The house was founded in 1818 by Nicolas-François Billecart and Louis Salmon. The house quickly established itself as a top producer. With a size of 90ha (of which 13ha are vineyards) they belong to the medium sized producers. The champagne is made from the grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir. Before they undergo malolactic fermentation, the base wines are fermented in stainless steel tanks. After being transformed into champagne, it matures on the yeast for 36 months. The Billecart Salmon Brut Rosé is considered a speciality of the house.

Fresh on the nose with an elegant and spirited character. On the palate aromas of strawberries, raspberries, orange peel and white cherries as well as floral notes of jasmine and citrus blossoms. Long lasting and animating on the finish. Drinking temperature: 8 - 10°C. The Billecart Salmon Brut Rosé harmonises perfectly with a salmon fillet on leek vegetables or simply with fresh wild berries.
