Billaud Simon Chablis, Tete D'Or

Billaud Simon Chablis, Tete D'Or

Domaine Billaud-Simon has one of the best reputations and longest winemaking historys in Chablis it was in 1815 when Charles Billaud first planted vines in what is now the premier cru of Mont de Milieu.

Today it is Bernard Billaud-Simon is in charge, and they make wine from some of the best grand cru and premier cru sites in the village. The aim is always to produce crisp, mineral Chablis with great elegance, purity and balance. They are fantastic when young but also have huge potential for ageing: the grand crus typically improve for at least a decade as their high acidity is covered by richness of fruit.

Tete d'Or is sourced from 28 year old vines from a domaine-owned a south/southeast facing 3 hectare parcel at the foot of the Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru in the heart of the Chablis appellation.

Grapes are manually harvested, pressed and macerated at cool temperatures for 7 days. Fermentation entirely in temperature controlled stainless steel. The wine is aged for 12 months in 80% stainless steel, 20% oak.

Attractive white gold color with delicate, pale green reflections. The nose offers citrus and white flowers. The palate is refined, smooth and rich. Everything is perfectly balanced: lively yet discreet, mineral without being dry, fruity yet refined.
