Samuel Billaud Chablis 1er Cru Sechet VV 2020

Offering up enticingly marine aromas of citrus oil, oyster shell and rock salt. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, it's layered and multidimensional, with superb depth at the core, racy acids and a long, chalky finish. As ever, it's one of Billaud's finest cuvées. Having parted ways with Domaine Billaud Simon, Samuel Billaud established his own state-of-the-art winery in central Chablis several years ago, and he has rapidly emerged as one of the town's best half-dozen producers. Working with four hectares of organically farmed estate vineyards, supplemented by purchased grapes, manual harvesting of ripe but bright fruit is the rule here, followed by fermentation at 16 to 20 degrees Celsius in tank and inconspicuous wood, and maturation for 15 to 18 months on the lees for the premiers crus and grand cru bottlings. The 2019 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this address, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended. (WK) Robert Parker Wine Advocate
