Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Tasting notes: Light straw yellow. It has a fine and very intense bouquet with floral and fruity notes, citrus and yellow fruit, followed by herbaceous and mineral hints. Good body but not heavy, thanks to the excellent balance of softness and hardness, which make it a harmonious and excellent drink. The finish is persistent and balanced.
Expert Rating: Inside Burgundy, 90/100.
"This Chablis is sophisticated and fresh. Showcasing an array of flavours from fresh apple, oyster shell minerality, fresh almond, white peach, citrus flavours to notes of iodine. The palate is driven by a great acidity and a textural mid-palate. This is very fine indeed. It pairs well with natural oysters, seafood or is perfect by itself as an aperitif. You can drink this wine now by decanting it 15 minutes before serving or it may be cellared up until 2025+.” Jasper Morris
About the winery:The Billaud family have been producing great Chablis since 1815. 6th generation Samuel set out on his own in 2010 and it is fair to say that after a decade, his dynamic approach and great winemaking touch have taken his domaine from a status of Rising Star to one of the very best, established growers in the region.
Samuel makes precise, elegant and terroir-true expressions of every vineyard in his care. His wines are electric and simply crackle with the tension and vibrancy which can be found in the region's best wines. Offering scintillating wines from the refreshing, steely fresh Petit-Chablis through to bold and dynamic Grand Crus, Samuel Billaud is a master of his craft, and as Neal Martin points out, "We should see him right at the top of Chablis producers alongside the likes of Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat". These are singular Chablis and the sheer embodiment of purity and poise.
