93/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 31, 2017 The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros has a splendid bouquet with a very subtle reductive note. There is real delineation and poise here, with walnut and smoke emerging with time and struck flint emerging later. The palate is well defined with a fine bead of acidity (although the acidity level is lower than in Blanchot). Touches of blackcurrant leaf and quince dovetail into a very energetic finish that lingers for over a minute. Superb.
93/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 31, 2018 A reserved bouquet of lemon oil, dried white flowers and beeswax introduces the 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir, a dense, full-bodied and concentrated wine that's quite firm and structured on the palate, showing considerable promise. It hails from two parcels at either end of this climat.
93/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2019 Billaud's 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Blanchot was another wine cropped at very low yields, around 20 hectoliters per hectare in this case. Offering up a pretty bouquet of citrus blossom, peaches and pears that's subtly framed by a discrete touch of oak, it's full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a broad attack, a fleshy core and a precise but delicately exotic finish.
92+/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2019 Billaud produced a mere 450 liters of the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Bougros, a full-bodied, fleshy wine that's deep and concentrated, redolent of honeycomb, orange rind and vanilla pod. Despite its broad shoulders, it's racy and precise and concludes with a saline finish, but it won't be easy to find.
94/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2019 Cropped at a meager 15 hectoliters per hectare, Billaud produced only two barrels of the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Clos. Offering up aromas of musky peach, mandarin and green apple, it's full-bodied, deep and textural, with the structure of a red wine on the palate. This is a powerful, super concentrated Les Clos, but it's also nicely balanced.
93/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2019 The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses offers up lovely aromas of orange blossom, oyster shells, iodine and beeswax. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, fine-boned, elegant and precise, with ripe acids and a saline finish. It's a fine rendition of this ethereal climat.
94+/100 Punkte Robert Parker August 2019 The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Vaudésir is one of the highlights of the portfolio this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of aromatic citrus fruit, clear honey, oyster shell and almond paste. On the palate, it's full-bodied, concentrated and layered, with racy acids and an intense and penetrating finish. This will be well worth following for the better part of two decades.
90/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Feb 2019 Vinified in used pièces, the 2017 Malanser Chardonnay is clear, bright and fresh on the rather lean, reductive and fruity nose that reveals crystalline mineral expressions. Firm, intense and piquant on the palate, this is an intense and powerful but elegant and racy Chardonnay from the Selvenen. It did not undergo malolactic fermentation and comes along pretty racy and piquant but not as quiet as the Gantenbein Chardonnay. Fresh. Tasted November 2018.
91/100 Punkte Falstaff April 2019 Elegantes Bouquet mit Noten von Agrumen, darunter Grapefruit und Mandarine. Ausserdem reife Mango und Ananas, sowie Mirabelle. Am Gaumen straffe, elegante Säure, dezente Fruchtaromatik und salzig wirkender, langer, mineralischer Abgang.
92/100 Punkte Robert Parker, Feb 2019 The 2016 Auvernier Chardonnay is pure, intense and mineral on the nose, where ripe fruit and very fine chalk and sur lie aromas are displayed. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, remarkably fine and elegant wine with an enormously intense, complex and persistent finish. Still young and fresh but very promising. Tasted in February 2019.
