Chablis 'Grand Terroirs' by Samuel Billaud 2017

Chablis 'Grand Terroirs'

by Samuel Billaud 2017

Producer : Samuel Billaud

Region : Chablis (France), France (France)

Bottle Per Case : 12 x 750ml

Food Pairing : Rich Fish, Scallop

Tasting Notes

"The 2017 Chablis comes from three parcels, one by Chapelots with small yields, one in La Pargue and one in front of Vaillons from 80-year old vines. It has an elegant bouquet with yellow flowers, citrus lemon and light chalky scents that open nicely in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with a captivating linearity and focus, very taut with a saline finish that gets that old saliva flowing."

The Producer

Samuel Billaud

Descended from a renowned Chablis family, Samuel Billaud ventured out on his own in 2009 to establish his namesake winery. Previously the winemaker at Domaine Billaud-Simon, a prominent player in the traditional Chablis scene, Samuel achieved considerable success since launching his own brand. In 2015, he relocated to a new winery and acquired four hectares of vines from Domaine Billaud-Simon.

Situated in the heart of Chablis, the new winery was formerly owned by Stéphane Moreau-Naudet. It is designed to facilitate a gravity-based winemaking process, allowing Billaud to minimize pumping. The facility features state-of-the-art stainless steel tanks and an underground storage area for barrels.

The recently acquired vineyards cover prestigious grand crus such as Les Clos, Vaudésir, Montée de Tonnerre, Mont de Milieu, Séchet, as well as village-level plots like Les Pargues and Chapelot. Additionally, there's a Petit Chablis parcel just north of Les Clos. Samuel also secures grapes from grand crus Blanchots, Valmur, and Bougros, thanks to his deep connections within the Chablis community.

In the cellar, the premier and grand cru wines undergo fermentation with approximately 15% exposure to new wood, specifically large 450 and 600-liter barrels. This imparts a subtle oak influence without overwhelming the wines. The remaining portion is fermented in small stainless steel tanks.
