2013 Samuel Billaud "Montee de Tonnerre" Chablis 1er Cru

SKU #1385204 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A hint of wood easily allows the pretty aromas of white flowers, pear and algae to shine. There is fine concentration to the succulent middle weight flavors that possess fine depth on the lingering finish. This is an opulent but actually quite fine and balanced effort that should also be approachable young if desired. Worth considering. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (10/2015)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Chablis 1er Cru Montée de Tonnerre comes from two parcels and sees 20% oak aging, a majority from the Chassin cooperage. The nose is very expressive, riper than the Mont de Milieu with grilled almond and hints of vanilla soaring from the glass. This is a Chablis that is exotic and generous. The palate is tender on the entry with orange peel and hints of apricot, very approachable, but with appreciable length as it gently fans out. Excellent stuff from Samuel Billaud. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Pale, green-tinged yellow. Sexy nose combines scents of lemon, lime, fresh herbs and iodiney oyster shell. Round, rich and silky-smooth, offfering very good depth and a distinctly marine character to the flavors of soft citrus fruits, saline oyster shell and chalky minerals. The terroir shows through the vintage character in this very nicely balanced, long wine. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2015)
