Tonnellerie Billon is a traditional Burgundian cooperage based in Beaune and managed by Vincent Damy. The cooperage has an annual production of around 12,000 barrels, which are well-loved for Pinot Noir production throughout Burgundy and around the world.
Billon offers barrels by forest origin, and just as Burgundian winemakers respect the terroir of the vineyards, the coopers respect the terroir of the forests. Billon recommends the Allier forest for Pinot Noir, as the tight grain brings fragrance and spices to the wine, and also shows more linearity on the palate. Our barrel also includes 3Y seasoning for a lighter oak impact, and toasting TBC based on style of your fruit.
Stylistically, Billon barrels focus on respecting the fruit to enhance the varietal characteristics. The barrels show some upfront richness on the palate and increase the length of the wine by bringing the fruit back on the finish. Billon are well suited to Pinot Noir to bring complexities and a fine tannin structure to the wine, whilst supporting the fruit on the nose and the palate.
Approximate value, including GST & delivery to a Victorian Winery – $1500.00
