Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, November 2020

    This fine Premier Cru sitting south west of the town of Chablis always produces a very perfumed and floral style of wine. This is a classical example in every way. The bright citrus flavours focus on lemon sorbet and lime, giving way to a touch of aromatic jasmine and chamomile. The long mineral steely finish gives a feeling of quality and class. Lovely.

    There is even classic Chablis character suffusing the white peach, pear and pretty floral nuances. The racy, intense and solidly mineral-driven medium weight flavors culminate in a saline and lemony finish that displays a mild touch of austerity. Drink 2026+

    Score: 17.5

    With a chalky, citrus attack, this is a firm wine with a mineral edge which brings a dramatic sourness to the flavour. Edgy and lean there is a raspy note here which makes the mouth water. The fruit is mountain-stream-fresh and there is a coolness which is extremely enticing. Drink 2022-2027

    Score: 90-93

    From six plots well distributed across Vaillons. For example, they pick the 75 year old vines in Séchets a week before those in Mélinots at the far end of the valley. Notably pale in colour, very reductive, suggestive of fresh mint on the stones. Almost dainty within the context of the vintage, yet with good grip at the back. 4 stars.

Producer

Domaine Billaud-Simon

Bernard Billaud sold his estate to the Cote d’Or’s largest landowner, Maison Faiveley, in 2014 and it is heartening to see this famous Nuits St Georges house both maintaining and driving the quality ideals of this great Chablis estate ever further forward. This substantial domaine of 17 hectares comprises exceptional vineyard sites including four premiers crus and four grands crus. Mature vineyards and minimal use of oak produce crisp and driven wines which are delicious in youth and fabulous with some age. The individual terroirs always shine through.

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.
