Samuel Billaud Chablis

Samuel Billaud Chablis

Samuel set out on his own, from the family domaine Billaud-Simon a number of years ago with a negociant business, and this super-talented winemaker goes from strength to strength. He recently acquired some of his own vineyards from his late uncle: fitting additions to his superb portfolio of wines. Samuel is a producer to follow in every vintage with his level of quality and value for money: he makes some of our favourite Chablis, and is now definitely dining at the village's top table.

It was after five years of legal wrangling 2/3 of Domaine Billaud-Simon was sold in August 2014 to Faiveley. From Samuel's 1/6 share of the property he has received 4.2ha of vineyards of the domaine from which he made wine in 2014. His sister obtained a similar amount of vineyard from her 1/6 share. 2/3 of the 20ha property was sold to Domaine Faiveley, including the buildings.

Samuel will continue the existing negociant business making a range of Chablis, premiers and grands crus. It remains to be seen whether he will bottle the domaine wines with the negociant ones or keep them separate.

Tasting Notes

One of the best village Chablis out there, this has plenty of tension and drive, but with a beautifully ripe core of grapefruit and fresh oranges. Concentrated notes of lemon oil, red apple and iodine. Lovely texture on the long finish. Blind, you'd call this Premier Cru, but this is a village Chablis that is punching well above its weight.
