Domaine Samuel Billaud

This domaine is a new addition to our Chablis range and I am sure it will be a huge success. Samuel Billaud is one of the most exciting winemakers in Chablis, rivalling the wines of Jean-Marie and Bernard Raveneau but at a fraction of the price. His 2019s are fabulous, a little lower in alcohol and higher in acidity than the 2018 vintage with fine depth and concentration as a result of lower yields. The vendange was early in 2019, starting at the beginning of September, and the wines are a winning combination of the minerality of 2017 and the richness of 2018. All the wines have been aged for 12-18 months on the fine lees in order to develop extra tension and complexity.

Tasting Notes

Produced from 70 year old vines, planted in the 1940’s by Samuel’s Grandmother, Gabrielle. This wine is simply lip-smacking, rich in citrus fruits, steely and taut with a crackling acidity. Grab it whilst you can!
