Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: 100% Chardonnay.
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.
Allen Meadows - Burghound 89-92/100.
"An elegant, admirably pure and airy nose freely offers up its aromas of green apple, lemon rind, oyster shell and iodine. There is again fine energy and detail to the equally saliva-inducing medium weight flavors that flash plenty of salinity on the complex, long and balanced finale. This too is excellent for its level.”
Vinous - 89-91/100.
"The 2020 Chablis "Grands Terroirs," from Les Pargues, Bas de Chapolot and Les Carts, is very primal on the nose, offering grapefruit, yellow flowers and a light flinty scent. The taut palate is vibrant and fresh with a fine bead of acidity. It gains weight with aeration and delivers a fresh, sea-spray-tinged finish. Just add your favorite seafood."
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.
