Charles Louis Noel Billaud returned home to Chablis at the end of the Napoleonic wars in 1815 and founded Domaine Billaud-Simon. The estate was purchased by Domaine Faiveley in 2014 but still operates with its own vineyard and facilities. 

Beautiful yellow color with pale green reflections. The nose is alluring with a distinctive Chablis style of vine peaches, banana, citrus and a touch of brioche. The palate is well-balanced between richness, freshness and elegance. The rich and supple texture lingers on the end palate. Intense ripe fruits blend with vanilla, mineral and vegetal notes and complement the wine’s soft structure.

W&S 93: 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.
