Domaine Billard Pere Et Fils Hautes Cotes de Beaune Blanc 2018

Fantastic aromas of ripe green fruit and minerals, with some creamy notes. On the palate this superb French wine is full bodied and balanced, classic white Beaune with some tropical fruit tones and elements of butter. Elegant, with good acidity, pair with shellfish, seafood, chicken and pork.

Billard’s Hautes Cotes de Beaune Blanc is 100% Chardonnay. The 3 hectare vineyard has the place name “lieu dit” of La Justice. The soil is very chalky and the land has good drainage and exposure. The grapes are fermented in barrel and then matured for 10 months “sur lie” before bottling. The resulting wine is rich and well structured but also quite elegant.

There are about 20 villages included in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune appellation. These old villages, many of which are barely inhabited, are secluded in the hills and their vineyards are interspersed with woodlands and farms that grow a variety of products. The Billard family home and winery are located in one of these, La Rochepot, a small village noted for its elaborate 13th century chateau which is set into a rocky hillside.

Domaine Billard has approximately 12.5 hectares of vineyards in different appellations throughout the Côtes de Beaune. Their largest holdings are in the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune with other small plots located in Saint-Romain, Saint-Aubin 1er Cru, Auxey-Duresses and Beaune. The domaine passed from father to son recently and Jérôme Billard has brought a new philosophy to his family domaine. Farming is done with respect for nature and follows the principles of organic farming. Yields are kept low through the use of cover crops and severe pruning and all the vines are harvested by hand. Only indigenous yeasts are used for the fermentation. Jérôme’s father sold his wine to the local cooperative but Jérôme is now estate bottling his entire production.
