Since its creation in 1818, six generations have succeeded each other in the running of the House, with the seventh generation preparing to take the helm.
Motivated by a shared passion for wine, from the vine to the glass, each member of this family has brought their own personal touch to the House, while always maintaining the visionary approach of giving priority to quality and striving for excellence.
François runs the House in conjunction with his younger brother Antoine, who is Deputy Managing Director in Charge of Export (both sixth generation), under the watchful eye of their father M. Jean Roland-Billecart. The succession is guaranteed with Mathieu Roland-Billecart (seventh generation), who will be the future President of the House.

Men of Wine
Denis Blée, director of the vineyard, for the last twenty years responsible for the Clos Saint-Hilaire and the oak Chai. From the pruning to the harvest, he rigorously surveys each parcel of the vineyard and ensures the maturing of the wines in the oak casks.
After 33 years working at Billecart-Salmon, François Domi has this year handed over the baton to Florent Nys as Chief Winemaker for Champagne Billecart-Salmon. Florent, who has been working as an apprentice under the watchful eye of François since 2005, is now ready to take over the reins.
