Billaud-Simon Petit Chablis 2017 75cl 12.5% ABV - Vegan
Domaine Billaud-Simon is renowned for producing some of the best wines in Chablis, long recognised for their steely, mineral style. Domaine Billaud Simon owns 20 hectares of vineyards in some of the best areas in Chablis. Most of the domaine's wines see no oak at all, apart from the Premier Cru Mont de Milieu which is 40% vinified oak and the Grand Cru Les Blanchots, which is 100% vinified in oak.
The grapes are carefully harvested in order to preserve the quality of the fruit. They are sorted manually on a vibrating sorting table in order to retain only the most healthy fruit. The grapes are drained naturally before being pressed using a pneumatic press in order to gently extract the juices and conserve as much aroma as possible.
This wine is a beautiful white gold colour with some hints of pale green. It has a lively and generous nose of citrus, white flowers and a touch of minerality. The palate holds soft fruits and fresh notes of lemon, grapefruit, apple and fern.
Pairs perfectly well with fish, especially sole fillet, smoked trout or prawn and avocado salads.
