92/100 Punkte Wine Spectator Feb. 2020 This shows a slight reduction at first, but those flavors add to the complexity of this silky, focused and well-balanced white. Notes of quince blossom, dandelion and ripe citrus mingle here, carried by vibrant acidity, which cuts through the velvety texture. Crunchy minerality marks the finish. Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling, Muskat Ottonel, Weissburgunder, Neuberger and Furmint. Drink now through 2026.
95/100 Punkte Vinous Jan 2020 One of the highlights in this range, the 2017 Chablis Montée de Tonnerre 1er Cru captures all of the energy and tension that makes wines from this site so distinctive. White flowers, mint, crushed rocks, slate and citrus all pulse through the 2017. The style is all about classical austerity, translucence and crystalline purity.
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.
96/100 Punkte Vinous Jan 2020 The 2017 Chablis Blanchot Grand Cru is another rock star wine. Powerful and explosive, with tons of underlying saline energy, the Blanchot is a mind-bendingly beautiful Chablis endowed with tons of character. Exotic floral notes add striking shades of nuance, but it is the wholeness of the Blanchot that stands out most.
