The Wine
Beautiful white gold hue with delicate pale green glimmers. A seductive and very classic Chablis nose offering vine peach, banana, citrus fruits and brioche. The palate is well-balanced, rich, fresh and elegant. The smooth, rich structure lingers on the end palate. Ripe fruits combine harmoniously with mineral notes to give a soft mouthfeel.

Domaine Billaud-Simon is renowned for producing some of the best wines in Chablis, long recognised for their steely, mineral style. Founded in 1815, the estate today is owned by the Faiveley family of famed Burgundian producer, Domaine Faiveley.

Domaine Billaud-Simon owns 17 hectares of vineyards in some of the best areas in Chablis. With four grand cru (Les Clos, Les Preuses, Vaudesir and Les Blanchots), as well as four premier cru, (Montée de Tonnerre, Mont-de-Milieu, Fourchaume and Vaillons). The domaine has long been known for its focused, mineral-driven wines thanks to meticulous viticulture in the best sites along with the latest winemaking technology.

Billaud-Simon seek to produce a crisp, mineral style of Chablis with finesse, purity and balance. They are delicious when young, yet offer great ageing potential – the high acidity is complimented by richness of fruit, particularly in the Grand Crus which will typically improve in bottle for at least a decade.

These are crisp, mineral-laden wines that are superb examples of modern style Chablis.
