Exclusive Offer - Up to 95 pts, Mature Grand Cru Chablis from Billaud Simon, at HK$500+ per bottle

September 27, 2017

For people hunting for outstanding Grand Cru Montrachets without breaking the bank should probably take a look and try fantastic wines from Chablis. Chablis is an area that many Burgundy wine lovers have overlooked, and it is undoubtedly producing some of the very best Chardonnays with magical mineral characters thanks to the unique Kimmeridgian soil, and for Asians they are perfect pairings with seafood, especially with shellfish.

 

There are some domaines which we keep under our radar in Chablis, such as William Fevre, Laroche and Billaud-Simon. They all produce excellent Chablis from time to time and nowadays they are still some of the top steals for Chardonnays that you could never find better price-to-quality ratio elsewhere. One that we would like to highlight today is Domaine Billaud-Simon, which was founded in 1815 by Charles Louis Noel Billaud. This domaine imposes careful measures from vines to bottles such as doing all grapes-picking by hand for all Grand Crus and 1er Crus vineyards and bottling their wines late as they want to make their wines fully ready before releasing them from the cellar.

 

We are able to offer two mature Chablis Grand Crus from Vintage 2010, which has been remarkably an astonishing vintage in Chablis and commented Chablis 2010 to be 5 out of 5 pts from renowned wine magazine and judging panel <Decanter>, stating 2010 to be a “classic year, the wines have structure and most premiers and grands crus from top estates have a long life ahead of them”. With 6 years of professional aging we assure these two Chablis have reached their maturity and that will be fantastic wines for meals. These are not easy to find in the market and we are able to offer them at prices below the average market price –

 

Billaud Simon Chablis Preuses Grand Cru 2010

$550 per bottle (Market Price HK$664 per bt*)

95 pts Antonio Galloni

The 2010 Chablis Les Preuses is another wine that captures the essence of the year in its crystalline purity. It reflects the subtler, more refined side of 2010 in its finely cut, chiseled white stone fruits, slate, smoke, mint, crushed rocks and lime. Although there is plenty of energy and focus in the glass, the Preuses, and the finish in particular, is all about delicacy and understated minerality. Anticipated maturity: 2014+.

 

Billaud Simon Chablis Blanchots Grand Cru 2010

$550 per bottle (Market Price HK$812 per bt*)

93 pts Antonio Galloni

Aging in oak gives the 2010 Chablis Blanchots Vieilles Vignes much of its softness and suppleness, but a serious core of deep, resonant fruit lies behind the wine’s approachable, open personality. In 2010, the oak is much better integrated than in the 2011 but that may be related to the extra year of elevage the 2010 has. A hint of yellow stone fruits, spices and apricots lingers on the finish. This should drink well with minimum cellaring. It is a striking effort. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
