A beautifully nuanced and layered nose offers up notes of mineral reduction, citrus and high-toned white flower perfume. The rich, intense and ultra-pure flavors glide across the palate to deliver the same terrific depth on the strikingly long finish as the nose originally promised. This is first rate.

(Domaine Billaud Simon Chablis Montee de Tonnerre) Pale green-yellow. Pure, discreet aromas of citrus fruit and herbs. Supple, juicy and precise, with a firm edge of mineral austerity to the citrus and mint flavors. Plenty of volume and density here but quite closed today and not yet showing its fruit. Finishes long and fresh, with very good lift and surprising volume to the finishing flavors of minerals and spearmint. Billaud's three parcels in Montee de Tonnerre were planted in 1935, 1971 and 1979.
