The Oddbins Take

There's a lot of fuss in Chablis about a precocious new talent called Samuel Billaud, of Billaud-Simon fame. He's regarded as one of the best producers in the region and definitely one to keep an eye on. Luckily for us (and possibly down to a family feud… but we're staying out of it) he has decided to branch out on his own, so we're ecstatic to introduce the Jules Billaud Chablis, made by Samuel exclusively for Oddbins under his eldest son's name. It's guaranteed to grab you firmly by the Chablis.

Samuel Billaud aims to find the greatest terroirs of Chablis and produce a pure expression of the Chardonnay grape. This wine is one of the finest unoaked Chardonnays available, made by one of the finest winemakers in the region. Samuel Billaud has been the winemaker at the famous Domaine Billaud-Simon for more than 20 years and has recently started a new venture to create his own brand of Chablis. The Jules Billaud Chablis is made exclusively for Oddbins. The grapes are grown on limestone clay soil on the gently sloping vineyards. The grapes are pressed and vinified in stainless steel tanks using naturel yeasts and fermentation takes around 2 weeks. The wines are aged on the fine lees for 9 months before being fined using bentonite and then filtered using a lenticular filter. The wine is then cold stabilised and bottled at the domaine.
