Domaine Billaud-Simon

About Domaine Billaud-Simon

Domaine Billaud-Simon was founded back in 1815 and had remained in family hands until 2014, when it was acquired by Domaine Faiveley – a challenging task considering the varying interests of members of the Billaud family. Despite being the new owners, Domaine Faiveley respected the long-standing practices established at Billaud-Simon even though their practices seemed rather unusual.

 

“We discovered a winemaking style that we had no idea could work, but it worked very well. In 2014 we let the team do what they usually did, but since we were the owners we looked at what they did, and we were very surprised how late they picked. They were the latest in Chablis by far. At Faiveley we tend to pick a little early. We thought it was bizarre, yet it worked very well, so we have kept that philosophy.” – Erwan Faiveley

 

Viniculture

These same practices that have served Domaine Billaud-Simon so well are ultimately responsible for different glorious expressions from Chablis. Today, Billaud-Simon is one of the very top echelon of producers in the region. Year in year out, they are stylistically different yet comparable with the likes of Dauvissat and Raveneau. Mainly favouring stainless steel over oak in their fermentation and elevage, although a certain amount of larger oak is used in Preuses as well as a single barrel to 'tame' the saline terroir of Blanchots Grand Cru. The overall effect is a compelling range of elegant, pure and stunningly pristine wines for your cellar.

Billaud-Simon Chablis 1er Cru Les Vaillons 2020 (6x75cl)

Burghound (91-93)

(from Vaillons proper). A ripe yet still reasonably typical nose reflects notes of lemon confit, white flowers, oyster shell and seashore nuances. The sleek, intense and delineated flavors possess good vibrancy on the notably more refined if not quite as powerful finish. I like this balanced effort plus it should age effortlessly.

Billaud-Simon Chablis 1er Cru Montee de Tonnerre 2020 (6x75cl)

Decanter (94)

Produced from three plots, one of which - Pied d'Aloup – is on average 84 years old. Intense nose, with a focused and pristine fruit character. Mineral with a touch of spice; an elegant wine with drive and precision. I suspect this will age very well and gain weight. No hurry to drink this.

Decanter (93)

Billaud-Simon have just over 7ha, with only two steel barrels produced (700 bottles). Additional richness and concentration here. Sunny, very ripe fruit but not at all heavy, with the oak beautifully integrated, then a mineral, chalky finish.

Decanter (96)

Made from 70-year-old vines, a small part of the blend was matured in old casks, the rest in vats. This is powerful, complex, but also refined and understated. Crisp, vibrant acidity, subtle wood notes and a long, lingering, mineral finish. A touch of the iron fist in a velvet glove.

Decanter (94)

From three plots, two facing north, the other south. This is always a warm valley, and winemaker Olivier Bailly thinks Vaudésir and Blanchot are very similar. 100% matured in vats, with just the end of ageing done in wood to add a hint of spice. Ripe, generous, creamy but has a very good line of acidity as well. Quite warm, enticing, with an intriguing finish.
