Founded in 1815, Domaine Billaud-Simon is renowned for producing some of the best wines in Chablis, long recognised for their steely, mineral style.
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.
A superb example of classic style Chablis. 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. Ripe fruits combine harmoniously with mineral notes to give a soft mouthfeel.
Delicious when served with Red tuna tartare, baked salmon parcels, crab
