Tasting note: 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.
In 1815, at the end of the Napoleonic wars, Charles Louis Noël Billaud returned home to Chablis and founded Domaine Billaud-Simon. The Domaine remained strictly a family business until its acquisition by Domaine Faiveley in July 2014. Since then, Domaine Billaud-Simon is managed separately from Domaine Faiveley: It has its own vineyard, winemaking facilities and remains dedicated to upholding the same style of the wines while continually striving to improve their quality. With ownership in four Grands Crus vineyards and four Premiers Crus vineyards, the Chablis wines of Domaine Billaud-Simon exhibit elegance, balance, and pure Chardonnay fruit. Delicious when young, they evolve beautifully with some aging.
