Domaine Billaud Simon has 20 hectares of vineyards in some of the best areas in Chablis with four grand cru vineyards, including Les Clos, Les Preuses, Vaudesir and Les Blanchots, as well as four premier cru vineyards, including Montee de Tonnerre, Mont-de-Milieu, Fourchaume and Vaillons. The domaine has long been known for its focused, mineral-driven wines thanks to meticulous viticulture in the best Chablis sites along with the latest winemaking technology.
The majority of the domaine’s wines see no oak at all, apart from the Premier Cru Mont de Milieu which is 40% vinified in oak and the Grand Cru Les Blanchots, which is 100% vinified in oak. The aim is always to produce a 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
