En Primeur | Domaine Billaud-Simon 2019

Six years on from the domaine’s purchase by one of the greatest names of the Côte d’Or, Domaine Faiveley, and their installation of new winemaker and manager, Savigny-Lès-Beaune-born Olivier Bailly, Billaud Simon is carving a new niche for itself as one of the finest domaines in the village of Chablis. Olivier, as one would expect for a former second row rugby player, is an imposing figure, but the description “gentle giant” could not be more apt. His approach is calm and thoughtful, and the investment at the domaine has been similar: carefully thought out, subtle tweaks here and there, mild adjustments in vinification and élevage, to improve and enhance a given vineyard or wine. This has raised the bar to another level from the already heady heights set by his predecessors, Bernard and Samuel Billaud.

Summing up their 2019s Olivier’s description is simple: “Sun-drenched grapes for a rich and well-balanced vintage! Fresh, rich and beautifully ripe wines. They disclose good concentration yet without any loss of acidity on the palate. Excellent cellaring potential.” An impeccable range this year from the village Chablis all the way through to their brilliant Grands Crus.
