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 wine 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.

Victoria Moore in The Telegraph, 6/2/15: "Chablis is an old favourite, and this one’s a goodie. No oak at all, just sophisticated glide."

Rose Murray-Brown on RoseMurrayBrown.com, 22/7/15: "Most popular of the five Chablis in our taste test. For those looking for a classic unoaked style, this is made by Samuel Billaud who worked for over 20 years at Domaine Billaud-Simon and has now created his own new brand, named after his eldest son Jules. Nine months on the lees, no oak, just pure unadulterated citric fruits with a minerally glide to the finish. An Oddbins exclusive – great stuff."

This wine is one of the finest unoaked Chardonnays available, made by one of the finest winemakers in the region, Samuel Billaud. Having worked at the famous Domain Billaud-Simon for more than 20 years, he has recently started a new venture to create his own brand of Chablis with the aim of finding the greatest terroirs of Chablis to produce a pure expression of the Chardonnay grape.

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 natural 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, when it is then cold stabilised and bottled at the domaine.
