Champagne Billecart-Salmon dates back to 1818. It is a small Champagne house with a focus on producing harmonious Champagnes from around 300 hectares of vines. The greatest claim to fame of Billecart is the 'Champagne of the Millennium' tasting which took place in 1999. A panel of expert tasters organised by writer and established Champagne guru Richard Jurlin voted Billecart's 1959 the overall winner. Not just that, their 1961 came 2nd.
