En Primeur Chablis 1er Cru Montée Tonnerre Samuel Billaud will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Located in the heart of Chablis, Domaine Samuel Billaud is a sustainable winery that uses gravity for most of the winemaking process. Samuel had previously been the winemaker at the renowned Domaine Billaud-Simon. He created his own label in 2015 and purchased four hectares of vines that had previously belonged to Domaine Billaud-Simon. Highly esteemed, Samuel is one of a kind, as Neal Martin rightly points out: ‘We should see him right at the top of Chablis producers alongside the likes of Raveneau and Vincent Dauvissat’.
Vinified in the same manner as the Mont de Milieu, this comes from two plots of vines at different altitudes within Montée de Tonnerre; Chapelots near the base and Triangle higher up. Often Samuel’s finest premier cru combining the power of Mont de Milieu with the purity of Séchet.
