Situated on the western edge of the Grand Cru hill, looking south to the sleepy town of Chablis, Billaud makes very small quantities of this steely, forceful wine, and in 2021 the quantity was even less. Tight, structured and deeply impressive.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

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.
A rich, full-bodied style, focused and wonderfully aromatic on the nose, showing crisp dessert apple, saline and chalky characters, underpinned with subtle oak and a lovely creamy, weighty edge. Tight, structured and deeply impressive.
