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 has turned out even better than I thought that it might and I had already though that it was going to be great. The elegant, pure and still relatively primary nose screams Chablis with its oyster shell, white flower, citrus peel and tidal pool aromas. The almost painfully intense, serious and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors seem to etch themselves into your palate before culminating in an overtly, massively long and perfectly balanced finish. Even at 8 years of age this is still very much on the way up and while it could certainly be opened now, I would advise waiting at least another 2 years and 5 wouldn't be too many. In a word, brilliant! AM95 (2014)
