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

A tight and mineral bouquet, the palate is lean and clean with a delicious tang of grapefruit. Fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, this wine possesses a classic purity, with great concentration of fruit and steely balance.
