A seventh generation member of the family, Roland-Billecart will take over from his cousin, François Roland-Billecart, who has headed the company since 1992.

After spending 15 years at a leading financial advisory firm in London, Mathieu has sat on the advisory board of Billecart-Salmon for the last five years.

He commented: “Champagne Billecart-Salmon’s strength rests on its solid family anchoring that allows us the luxury of taking our time to achieve excellence.

“My role will be to continue along the path that my predecessors have defined, bringing to it my own contribution. My objective is to continue to develop and improve our wines, because those are what bring about our growth, and most importantly, the loyalty of our most discerning clients. I’m extremely proud to carry on the work of François, who has done a fantastic job over the last 30 years to make Billecart-Salmon one of the best champagne brands in the world.”
