Description
 
Bernard Billaud and his nephew Samuel produce some of the very best examples of Chablis today. The domaine has 20 hectares of vines in some of the best sites in the appellation, including the Premiers Crus, Mont de Millieu and Vaillons and the Grands Crus, Blanchot, Les Clos and Les Preuses. In 1991 Billaud-Simon built a new state-of-the-art winery, equipped with numerous temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats. Previously the domaine had glass-lined, steel tanks, which were difficult to keep cool during fermentation. The majority of the domaine`s wines see no oak at all, with the aim being to produce Chablis of elegance, purity, balance and freshness. These are crisp, mineral-laden wines that are superb examples of modern style, unoaked Chablis. They are delicious when young, yet age beautifully as well.

This is also quite aromatically restrained but there is so much classic Chablis character present that even blind it could scarcely be mistaken for any other region. The cool, pure and focused middle weight flavors possess an almost pungent minerality along with a clean, markedly dry, balanced and beautifully persistent finish. This is a terrific example for its level and would make a fine choice for an all-around, as well as age-worthy, house white. AM 89 (2014)
