Billecart-Salmon Masterclass with Mathieu Roland-Billecart – Wednesday 3rd May
On Wednesday 3rd May, Members will be treated to an exquisite, suitably sophisticated evening at the Club as we open our doors to the legendary House of Billecart-Salmon.
Billecart-Salmon is located in the premier cru village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ in Champagne. It was created in 1818 when Nicolas François Billecart and Elisabeth Salmon were married, their union marking the House’s birth. They were joined by passionate oenologist Louis Salmon (Elisabeth’s brother) and this has been a family story ever since.
Across seven 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’. Today, Mathieu Roland-Billecart runs the estate which is renowned for the elegance, finesse and freshness of its Champagnes. Florent Nys – the protege of Billecart’s renowned chef de cave François Domi – is the current cellar master.
Aside from hearing about a new Billecart-Salmon innovation from our host Mathieu Roland-Billecart himself, Members can revel in a vertical tasting of its iconic, prestige cuvée Nicolas-François, including a family reserve library vintage served from jeroboam and which has never been tasted, let alone sold, outside of the estate.
The wines we will be tasting:
NV Brut Réserve (2019 base wine)
NV Brut Réserve (2018 base wine)
1998 Nicolas-François (from jeroboam)
