Domaine Billaud-Simon

The takeover of Domaine Billaud-Simon by famous Burgundy estate Domaine Faiveley was a quiet footnote in last week’s global wine news. We wanted to bring the sale to your attention though because it signifies a serious recognition of the wines from this superior Chablis property.

These 1er Cru & Grand Cru wines can stand up to just about any other Chardonnay in the world. Supremely vineyard focused and pleasantly oaked, these wines are made in a style that is extremely popular with critics and consumers alike, something that Faiveley clearly noticed.

The acquisition marks the end of an era and Billaud-Simon back vintages will become increasingly difficult to source. These are our remaining cases and fans of these beautiful whites should secure them before they are no longer available.
