Tasting Notes

Pale lemon colour. Once again, the nose is discreet but fine. Actually, I can still taste the straight Chablis which immediately preceded this! Crisp, stony, then a light vegetal touch with some lemon juice as well. Detailed finish, long and fine. Still very youthful. 15 hl/ha Drink from 2025-2028. Tasted: June 2022.

Score: 91 - 93

The 2021 Chablis Montmains 1er Cru was acutely affected by frost, 10-15hl/ha this year. It has a lovely nose with Granny Smith apples, Nashi pear and light flinty aromas that unfold in the glass. The palate is very well balanced, very malic and tensile with impressive weight and energy towards the finish. Small in quantity, big in quality. Quite simply, Samuel Billaud is one of the best producers in Chablis at the moment. If you have not discovered the wines, what are you waiting for?
