Samuel Billaud Chablis Grands Terroirs

31.00

This excellent Chablis has a fine balance of ripe fruit and thrilling acidity.  With a great length on the finish, it will develop with age in the cellar if you can keep your hands off it.

Sourced from three parcels of vines in different sectors of the appellation; 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 just below Montée de Tonnerre. Samuel Billaud is one of Chablis’ greatest winemakers.  For twenty years he was responsible for the superb quality of wine at the family estate, Domaine Billaud-Simon, before setting up his own winery in 2009, where he produces a range of wines from several of the region’s finest sites.  In 2014 he recovered his share of the Billaud-Simon vines which he now vinifies and bottles under his own name.
