The Chablis Mont de Milieu 1er Cru from Billaud-Simon is a long-time favourite at FINE+RARE which punches well above its weight and keeps customers coming back year after year. The 2015 is an archetypal offering of both the domaine and vineyard, with Meadows calling it “very Mont de Milieu”.
Beautifully made, complex and delicious, Billaud-Simon’s wines offer an excellent alternative to white Burgundy at seriously good prices. This pedigree coupled with the quality of Mont de Milieu, a vineyard responsible for some of Chablis’ best 1er Cru wines, makes for an exciting combination.
Meadows gave the 2015 an upper range of 92 points when he tasted it from barrel in 2016 – implying that this wine still has some way to go to reach its zenith.
It is one to snap up now and enjoy over the coming years. We are delighted to offer:
