Tasting notes: "A particular success, the 2019 Chablis 1er Cru Vaillons Vieilles Vignes unwinds to reveal notions of grapefruit, dried white flowers, freshly baked bread and oyster shell. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, it's taut and chiseled, with racy acids and chalky structure, concluding with a penetrating finish. Having parted ways with Domaine Billaud Simon, Samuel Billaud established his own state-of-the-art winery in central Chablis several years ago, and he has rapidly emerged as one of the town's best half-dozen producers. Working with four hectares of organically farmed estate vineyards, supplemented by purchased grapes, manual harvesting of ripe but bright fruit is the rule here, followed by fermentation at 16 to 20 degrees Celsius in tank and inconspicuous wood, and maturation for 15 to 18 months on the lees for the premiers crus and grand cru bottlings. The 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this address, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended." (WK)

Expert Rating: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93/100

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.
