Billaud- Simon was founded in 1815 and is now owned by the Faiveley Family, a famed Burgundy producer. The estate encompasses 17 hectares which are all centred around the village of Chablis itself, and they have plots in 4 Chablis Grand Crus and 4 Chablis Premier Crus too. Billaud-Simon are renowned as having some of the best and highest quality Chablis made in a very crisp, mineral style by winemaker Olivier Bailly, with little or no oak in order to maintain and showcase their natural quality. This example is from the ‘Vaillons’ Premier Cru, which is one of the largest in Chablis and benefits from a Southeasterly aspect meaning plenty of sun and superb quality of soil. As one would expect, this is an incredibly fresh and vibrant wine with notes of ripe citrus and white flowers. Pleasant, delicate and refined, this is perfect paired with any fish or salad dish. 13.5% ABV.
