Chablis Tête d’Or 2018

Domaine Billaud-Simon


Terroir: Tête d’Or is sourced from 28 year old vines from a domaine-owned a south/southeast facing 3 hectare parcel at the foot of the Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru in the heart of the Chablis appellation.

Vinification: Grapes are manually harvested, pressed and macerated at cool temperatures for 7 days. Fermentation entirely in temperature controlled stainless steel. The wine is aged for 12 months in 80% stainless steel, 20% oak.

Additional Information

Attractive white gold color with delicate, pale green reflections. The nose offers citrus and white flowers. The palate is refined, smooth and rich. Everything is perfectly balanced: lively yet discreet, mineral without being dry, fruity yet refined.

    "Produced from the domaine's holdings, the 2018 Chablis Tête d'Or exhibits notions of crisp golden orchard fruit, dried white flowers, peach and clear honey, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive palate that's deeper and more concentrated than the regular bottling."
