Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve NV Gift Boxed
In 1818 Nicolas Billecart married Elizabeth Salmon and founded Billecart-Salmon and is one of a very few Champagne houses that is still family-owned today. Every vintage and every Cuvee from this Champagne house speaks of the Billecart-Salmon philosophy - fruit, freshness, and acidity. Sublimely crafted flavours married with excellent structure, balance and texture make this Champagne a steal for its price point and delivered in an elegant black, and silver Billecart-Salmon branded box for elegant gifting.

Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide
A fragrant bouquet has an air of lemon blossom and lemon meringue. Subtle white summer fruits, pears, lemons and grapefruits carry a low profile across the palate, lingering long and clean amidst dazzling minerality and a fine bead. A subtle dosage of 8g/L of sweetness integrates subtly into the wine. Thanks to this wine, elegant champagne is again within reach virtually everywhere this year – and sometimes under $60!
