  • Goedhuis, December 2010

    Open opulent almost exotic fruit aromas and flavours, this is richly succulent wine, whilst not lacking the vibrance of a true Chablis. This is a wine which will give huge pleasure to all lovers of great Chablis and its long core of minerality on the finish helps to create a very sophisticated wine indeed.

  • Burghound, October 2011, Score: 94

    A highly expressive nose leaves absolutely no doubt where the underlying fruit was grown as this exudes almost as Chablis character as it's 2010 counterpart with an abundance of mineral reduction to the white flower and iodine-infused nose. There is fine detail to the powerful, concentrated and mineral-inflected flavors that possess superb length and seemingly an endless reserve of dry extract. Even though this is a big wine, even by the extraordinary standards of a typical Les Clos, this is like rolling rocks around in your mouth. Drink 2016+

    Sweet and rich without enough nerve. Rather hot.

The Billaud-Simon name is long-established in Chablis, dating back to 1815 when Charles-Louis-Noël Billaud purchased his first vineyards. The estate remained in family ownership for 200 years until Erwan Faiveley purchased Billaud-Simon for Joseph Faiveley in 2015. This represents a new era for the Faiveley family, one of the Côte d’Or’s most significant vineyard owners, now investing their expertise and commitment to producing great wines in the Yonne and Chablis with approximately 18 hectares of exceptional vineyard holdings including four premiers crus and four grands crus. Under the guidance of Wine Director Olivier Bailly, they remain respectful to the traditions of the estate and continue to sell the wines under the Billaud-Simon name. The style is graceful and pure. Olivier seeks to make wines with true appellational authenticity. Oak is kept to minimal levels, only used judiciously, allowing the natural fruit content to express itself to a maximum.Read less

Region

Chablis

Chablis is world famous for its fine white wines produced from the Chardonnay grape. The best vineyards are perched above the winding Serein river and are south or southwest facing ensuring better ripeness in this cooler climate. It has four appellation levels. Petit Chablis is the most modest and simple followed by Chablis, which is the largest and most prominent. Premier cru Chablis is the third largest appellation and encompasses almost 40 different climats or vineyards including the famed Montée de Tonnerre, Fourchaumes and Mont de Milieu. The most noble of all Chablis are the grand crus of which there are 7 climats in total Bougros, Les Preuses, Vaudésir, Grenouilles, Valmur, Les Clos and Blanchot. The wines of Chablis have remained some of the best value in the world, particularly their superb grand crus which can easily cost 50% less than its closest revered white grand cru neighbour, Corton Charlemagne.
