Billecart-Salmon is a medium-sized champagne house in Mareuil-sur-Ay, France. Founded in 1818 with the marriage of Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon,[1] it is one of the few to remain family owned.

The Cuvee Nicolas-Francois Billecart 1959 won first place in the Champagne of the Millennium 1999, out of 150 of the finest 20th century champagnes.[2] A magnum of the winning champagne later sold for £3,300.[3]

Billecart-Salmon champagnes have also been reviewed favourably by wine writer, Jancis Robinson.[4]
