Domaine Samuel Billaud

Samuel continues to make many of the most exciting wines coming out of Chablis today, equal in quality to Jean-Marie and Bernard Raveneau, but at a fraction of the price. His 2020’s are a great range. Samuel decided to pick early, from the 28th August to the 6th September, and to age all his wines for at least 10 months on the fine lees, in order to achieve a winning combination of ripe, appley fruit on the nose, fresh, succulent texture on the palate and fine minerality and salinity on the finish. Samuel likens his 2020’s to his 2017’s – high praise indeed as the 2017’s are currently developing into spectacular wines.

Tasting Notes

Samuel produces his Chablis from three separate plots – Les Pargues, towards the village of Préhy, Les Cartes between the Premiers Crus of Vaillons and Montmains, where the vines are 60 years old and Bas de Chapelots which is situated just below Montée de Tonnerre. Intense, stylish with a dreamy minerality, this will delight the avid Chablis drinker.
