Billaud-Simon 2016 (France: Burgundy)

Name Billaud-Simon 2016
Varietal Chablis
Region France: Burgundy
Notes "A tangy version, offering lemon, apple and earth flavors, with a chalky feel as this plays out on the moderately long finish. Drink now. 6,500 cases made." (Wine Spectator) "Apricot, yellow peach and a touch of banana on the nose. Fat, spicy and lightly saline, conveying musky lime oil and ginger flavors. Less reduced than the Petit Chablis, which needs a racking. Good material here, if a bit lower in acidity than the Petit Chablis at 4.3 grams per liter. Finishes nicely dusty and dry." (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous)
