The Billecart Salmon Clos Saint Hiliaire vintage 1999, is a unique Blanc de Noirs champagne that bears the name of the patron saint of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. The one hectare
vineyard has always belonged to the family and responds to the most stringent norms: a single, unbroken and enclosed plot with a complete vinification installation in situ. Its vines, planted and pampered since 1964, have developed all the qualities of the best
crus. The magic of the soil added to human skills has produced an exceptionally pure wine sourced exclusively from Pinot Noir. To enable this great wine to mature in typical single cru style, the House chooses to add very little dosage.
This cuvée, hallmarked by chalk and its alluvial soil, stands out for the complexity of its aromas combined with a surprising freshness in a great wine. It will mature wonderfully over the next 20 years. For each vintage, there will be a limited release of between 3,500 to 7,500
individually numbered bottles, reserved for those very special moments.
