Bourgogne d'Or, 2019, Samuel Billaud, Burgundy
This is a chardonnay made by Chablis royalty. Samuel Billaud, known for producing top quality Grand Cru Chablis, gives the same love and attention to this Bourgogne as he does his other wines, and the result is just as delicious.
About this wine
This white Burgundy is a secret showstopper. Those in the know will tell you that when it comes to Burgundy, you want to find top notch producers and try their Bourgogne and Village wines. The care, passion and process are often similar to that of the Premier and Grand Cru wines but just without the hefty price tag.
A blend of chardonnay grapes from Chablis and Macon, this wine has the acidity of an outstanding Chablis, lemon and apples notes and a hint of vanilla and minerality. This is wine for a special occasion to yourself. Light and deeply satisfying, popping the cork is as good as a rejuvenating spa day.
