Chablis "Les Grands Terroirs", Domaine Samuel Billaud, Chablis, Burgundy, France, 2021
Grape: A blend of 100% Chardonnay, hand picked from three sites across Chablis; Les Cartes & Les Pargues (both on the Left Bank) and Chapelot (on the Right Bank, south-east of, and adjacent to, the domaine's Chablis Grand Cru plots).
A real high-quality Chablis with lovely, pure, apple fruit and a rich, mouth-watering texture with flavours of lemon and peach, along with background notes of grapefruit and orange peel. Fresh acidity will allow the wine to keep for several years.
Samuel Billaud is one of Chablis’ finest winemakers. For over twenty years he has been responsible for some of the best wines produced in Chablis. He established his own winery in 2009 and, in 2014, his estate was greatly extended when he recovered his share of the Domaine Billaud-Simon vines after the family estate was sold to Faiveley. He has now built a new winery in the centre of Chablis where he ferments the wines in a mixture of stainless steel vats and 450 litre demi-muids (for premier & grand cru wines)
2021 was a good quality vintage, although quantities were severely reduced due to spring frosts in the region and strict selection of the grapes was needed to remove any botrytis affected berries.
