Client visit to Maison Billecart-Salmon

Here at Dhall & Nash, we pride ourselves on our fantastic relationships with both our customers and our suppliers. This opens the door to astonishing opportunities.

We organised a special visit for clients Gilbert and Tina to the beautiful and historic Maison Billecart-Salmon, whilst they were in France recently.

La Maison, it’s vineyards and winery are situated in the charming village of Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Champagne, France.

Gilbert and Tina enjoyed a guided tour of the Maison, it’s famed Clos St Hilaire (where the grapes used to make the celebrated cuvée of the same name are grown) and the winery itself. They stayed in the guest house on the property for the duration of their stay.

The highlight of the visit for Gilbert and Tina was hearing about the meticulous blending process behind every cuvée produced. “The blending panel have such a clear vision of the type of wine they want to produce, it is obvious that great care and consideration goes into each and every blend.”
