2019 Chablis, Samuel Billaud

This comes from a blend of three parcels, which Samuel says each contributes complexity, richness, and minerality. That’s a pretty good combination for a Chablis. It is flinty, clean-cut, direct, and persistent, and invariably one of our best-sellers.

2019 Chablis, Samuel Billaud

TASTING NOTES

A slightly riper but still agreeably fresh nose combines notes of just sliced citrus with those of iodine, seashore and algae. The sleek, attractively textured and vibrant medium-bodied flavors possess good if not truly distinguished depth and persistence. This well-made effort could be enjoyed young or cellared for a few years first.

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.
