This truly remarkable Champagne house was founded in 1818 with the marriage of renowned and decorated winemarker Nicolas Francois Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon. With a devotion to quality and excellence, this family has consistantly produced a wide range of supreme Champagnes without ever losing independant control over the estate. Now, the sixth generation in Antoine and Francois Roland-Billecart, working with expert winemakers, sustain the family passion for creating exceptional wines.
The 1959 vintage of the Cuvee Nicolas Francois Billecart was named 'Champagne of the Millennium' in 1999 during a blind tasting of 150 vintages of the most distinguished Champagne producers. Second place was also handed to the 1961 vintage.
