2013 Chablis, Montée de Tonnerre, 1er Cru, Samuel Billaud

Sold Out

Picked on 4th and 5th October, just in time, this is a pale lemon colour with a powerful nose, Chablis with some bite to it, as well as sunshine. Some refined reduction to the nose, then a burst of white and yellow fruit, some plums, a tangy, chalky finish, the oyster shells are there. More backward but it is all there. Jasper Morris MW - Burgundy Wine Director Samuel Billaud notes the very short window in 2013: the grapes were late to ripen but then it poured on Saturday 5th October which accelerated the rot. He began at the end of September and finished on 8th October. Overall yields were
