2016 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis

SKU #1404634 93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Olivier Bailly makes two AOC Chablis wines at Billaud-Simon, including the Tête d’Or (also recommended here). This wine was lovely right out of the gate and just got more delicious as it opened over the course of a day. There’s crisp definition from the lemon-lime zestiness, focusing the scents of meadow flowers and the juicy apple flavors into a creamy richness that fills the mouth, then lasts with the kind of pleasant abrasive texture that chardonnay can give when it’s grown in a mass of ancient seashells. It has a youthful greenness—one taster described it as Sicilian green almonds—placing the wine with anything from the raw bar. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is aromatically similar to the Petit Chablis though there is both a bit more volume and complexity to the succulent and notably round middle weight flavors that are delicious if not exactly classic. This too should drink well young. Inner quote mark (10/2017)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A tangy version, offering lemon, apple and earth flavors, with a chalky feel as this plays out on the moderately long finish. (BS, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark
