2017 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir, Samuel Billaud

From 2 parcels within the vineyard, falling either side of the central ridge: one is a warm site, the other a cool one. Blending them together gives it great complexity and peresonality. There’s a tension here but also so much purity. It shows a lovely fine balance and cool fruit, and rewards the efforts of someone who picked at exactly the right moment in 2017.

2017 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.
