2016 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes, Samuel Billaud

Perhaps the most savoury of Samuel’s cuvées, with a clean kick of gunflint. South-facing, there’s a generous rounded quality to the pure and precise lemon fruit.

2016 Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaumes, Samuel Billaud
Domaine Samuel Billaud

Samuel set out on his own, from the family domaine Billaud-Simon a number of years ago with a negociant business, and this super-talented winemaker goes from strength to strength. He recently acquired some of his own vineyards from his late uncle: fitting additions to his superb portfolio of wines. Samuel is a producer to follow in every vintage with his level of quality and value for money: he makes some of our favourite Chablis, and is now definitely dining at the village's top table.
