DOMAINE BILLAUD-SIMON CHABLIS 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1
This is classic, bone-dry Chablis from the family firm of Billaud-Simon, one of the region's outstanding producers. Classic aromas of seaweed and lanolin. The ripe fruit has an almost pungent minerality on the tension-filled, clean and racy finish. Suggested food match: Oysters, mussels, poached chicken.
Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
The Chablis wine region stretches along the Serein valley and across 20 communes. Chablis, known as the ‘Porte d’Or de la Bourgogne’ (‘Golden gate of Burgundy’), has succeeded in establishing a reputation for its dry white wines with a distinctive style: clear, aromatic and lively with a distinct minerality.

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."
89/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"(from 11 parcels scattered around Chablis, the most notable of which are from Les Pargues). This is aromatically similar to the Petit Chablis though there is both a bit more volume and complexity to the succulent and notably round middle weight flavors that are delicious if not exactly classic. This too should drink well young."
89/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"(done entirely in cuve): Medium yellow. Apricot, yellow peach and a touch of banana on the nose. Fat, spicy and lightly saline, conveying musky lime oil and ginger flavours. Less reduced than the Petit Chablis, which needs a racking. Good material here, if a bit lower in acidity than the Petit Chablis at 4.3 grams per litre. Finishes nicely dusty and dry."
