Description

Billaud-Simon Vaudesir is one of the finest Chablis you’ll ever drink. But you must be patient. That means, waiting at least 10 years.

Fragrant and exotic, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir bursts with notes of white flowers, orange rind, musky peach and spices. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and satiny, with lively acids, a fleshy core and a long, floral and intensely saline finish.” Billaud-Simon Vaudesir Chablis Grand Cru 2017. 92 points. The Wine Advocate, William Kelley, August 30, 2019

Billaud-Simon Chablis is, in my opinion, one of the must-have producers in your cellar. I love their delicate and understated nature but they are ripe enough that you can drink them young. Definitely wines of terroir which is great because they hold some of my favourite vineyards too.

Chablis 

The Kimmeridgian soils that make Chablis taste like Chablis is evident in these wines. They have more definition of the region and more structure than a Petit Chablis. But without the fruit weight and intensity of the better sites. Great wines for drinking young or youngish.

Chardonnay 

The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool-climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
