Moving up the premier cru hierarchy, Billaud Simon’s Chablis Tet d’Or is a strong argument for those who value the complexity and longevity that Chardonnay may reach in the proper terroir. Produced from a premier cru climate known for its exceptional soils of Kimmeridgian limestone facing southeast, this wine takes advantage of perfect sun exposure and a strong cool climate to create a complex and well-aged Chablis.

In the cellar, Billaud Simon adopts a non-interventionist stance, letting the Tet d'Or grapes speak for themselves in every aspect of the wine. The nose is characterised by high-toned saltiness and the characteristic wet stone minerality of Chablis, with modest notes of blanched almond, pear peel, and fresh lime zest. A flinty undertow and nervy acid backbone heighten the flavours of crisp green apple, lemon curd, and toasted brioche on the richly textured palate. Over the next five to seven years, this tension and balance should lead to tremendous evolution.

The precision, depth, and promise of this Tet d'Or make it worthwhile for connoisseurs of age worthy, terroir-expressive Chardonnay to pick up a few bottles. Experience a legendary Chablis site through the remarkably transparent lens of a world-renowned producer at the pinnacle of their craft.
