2016 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir, Samuel Billaud

Vaudésir is most commonly considered the second best grand cru plot after Les Clos, and it’s clear as to why. Samuel has two parcels, one on each side of the vineyard, which bring markedly different characters. There’s lovely pure citrus, with floral and saline notes and real power on the palate. It’s long, precise and utterly charming.

2016 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir, 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.
