This Premier Cru comes under the wider Vaillons appellation, situated on the left bank of the river Serein. This wine is simply lip-smacking, rich in citrus fruits, steely and taut with a crackling acidity. Fantastic Chablis – Grab it whilst you can!

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.
This wine enjoys 18 months on fine lees in tank which adds weight, structure and a wonderful creaminess, perfectly counterbalancing the thrilling acidity, pink grapefruit notes and weighty minerality.
