  • Goedhuis, December 2022

    Such a fine Grand Cru, recognised for making wines with great power and complexity. Floral aromas, with lemon sherbet and pink grapefruit. A tighter and more linear style than some years. Tremendous purity, mineral with a saline earthy finish.

  • Burghound, October 2022, Score: 93-95

    with its beautiful nose of acacia blossom, quinine, iodine and shrimp shell wisps. The sleek, intense and beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors flash excellent minerality and detail on the highly complex and persistent finale that is impeccably well-balanced. This stylish and very classy effort is pretty much textbook Preuses. Don't miss. Drink 2029+

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2022, Score: 93-95

    All in tank at the moment, and may not be switched to wood. A vast volume, with a slightly oily texture at the moment, but a comforting weight of fruit with very precise acidity at the back. Another first rate Billaud-Simon Preuses in the making. Drink from 2027-2032.

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.
