  • About this winery

    The H Billiot estate is comprised of 5 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards spread across 18 different mid-slope parcels of limestone in Ambonnay. Upon release, the wines are snapped up by in-the-know wine enthusiasts seeking 100% Grand Cru fizz at an entry-level price. Owned and operated by Laetitia Billiot, the vineyards have been in the family since the early 20th century.

    October 2015

    An elegant Champagne, featuring a firm, acidic frame, finely meshed with a detailed mousse and flavors of ripe apple, toasted raisin bread, fleur de sel, peach skin and star anise. Offers a lingering, chalk-tinged finish. Disgorged September 2014.

    Treve Ring & Anthony Gismondi, December 2017

    This small family house owns five, well-located, mid-slope Grand Cru hectares in Ambonnay, and is now run by Serge Billiot's daughter Laetitia, who has been a leading force in Champagne for younger, woman winemakers. The Reserve is a blend of 75 percent pinot noir and 25 percent chardonnay with 24 months on the lees, and crafted of 50 percent 2014, 25 percent 2013, 25 percent 2012. All of the wines are fermented in enameled stainless steel, and none undergo MLF, fining or filtration, the latter three choices all bold moves in Champagne, and ones that pay off in complexity. The wine is honeyed, nutty and full of crackable creme brûlée, with an undercurrent of fresh red apple, Rainier cherry and lemon tones. There's a seasoning of nutmeg and cinnamon that lingers on the shimmery finish. Polished, and authentic.

    January 2015

    (75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay; 11 g/l dosage; disgorged in June, 2014): Pale onion skin color. Pungent, mineral-accented aromas of dried pear, cherry pit and succulent herbs, with a subtle floral nuance in the background. Smoky and broad in the mouth, offering bitter pear skin and quinine flavors and a hint of earthy rhubarb. Shows more sweetness on the clinging, toasty finish, which features notes of tangerine and candied rose.
