Their Story: Soon we will have another woman at the helm of a great House. Serge Billiot, now approaching retirement is slowly turning over the estate to his daughter Laetitia and her husband. The couple is keen to learn how Serge weaves his magic, since he tends to cultivate a certain playful mystery about his craft.
Peter Liem, the guru of all Champagne gurus, writes “I am a huge fan of the Henri Billiot estate in Ambonnay, and I find all of their wines to be well worth buying, from the richly expressive Brut Réserve...I have a particular fondness, however, for Billiot’s Brut Rosé, one of my favorite rosés in all of Champagne.”
