Lose yourself in the french style garden and see the one-hundred year old horse chestnut tree, which has proved a majestic companion across 7 generations. If the walls of the House could talk they would tell all the secrets spoken here since the marriage of Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon in 1818… It all started here in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, marking the creation of their Champagne House.
This has been a family story since the beginning with Louis Salmon, brother of Elisabeth and a passionate oenologist, getting involved in the creation of the wines. Thus, over 7 generations, each member of the family has endeavoured to continue the family tradition, staying faithful to the same motto: "Give priority to quality, strive for excellence". Le Clos Saint-Hilaire. A unique parcel, one hectare of Pinot Noir vines : a promise of excellence. Here, we have revived the traditional Champenois methods of champagne production to improve the biodiversity of this generous land. The Clos Saint-Hilaire is a single parcel where the vines, soil and subsoil are carefully tended with respect for the environment. Several years ago, Billecart-Salmon decided to return to ancestral champagne-making methods in the Clos Saint-Hilaire by using work horses and sheep. This method of maintaining the soil and tending the vines increases porosity and biodiversity: the roots grow deep and the minerals they draw from the soil foster the growth of smaller, more concentrated grapes, revealing the terroir's typical flavour. The Clos Saint-Hilaire has created an exceptional champagne which is named after the patron saint of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Made exclusively from Pinot Noir vinified in oak casks, it develops an outstanding purity. For each vintage, there is a limited release of between 3,500 to 7,500 individually numbered bottles.
