95 points, “Blanchot is one of the cooler grand cru sites, but Olivier Bailly still chose to pick this on 2 September. Now aged entirely in older wood, the cuvée has undergone a change in style in recent years to make it more elegant, aromatic and direct. Racy, sappy and fresh, it's tangy, saline and mouth-wateringly appealing, with pear and citrus fruit intensity. Drinking Window 2021-2028.” – Tim Atkin MW for Decanter

Domaine Billaud-Simon has long been an iconic Chablis producer. In 2014 this famous estate was purchased by the legendary Domaine Faiveley. Combining the significant skillsets and impressive experience of these two Burgundy superstars has resulted in stunning wines ever since…

According to the highly respected Allen Meadows of Burghound, Domaine Billaud-Simon’s Chablis Grand Cru Blanchots 2018 is “ultra-floral”, not to mention “delicious, voluminous and energetic”, and it possesses “a highly beguiling texture”. We thoroughly concur; there’s chalk, tangerine, grapefruit, crunchy peach, biscuit, marzipan, stony minerality, orchard blossom, crisp green apple and smoked sea salt. Creamy and expressive, this is a Chablis for those who like to explore and unearth something truly unique.

The wines from on top of the Grand Cru hill always have so much elegance and refreshing acidity. So, pair this mineral white with simply cooked seafood, honey-roast pork, dishes finished with truffle oil, huitlacoche tacos or creamy wild mushrooms.
