2017 Domaine Billaud-Simon Chablis Grand Cru "Les Preuses"

SKU #1442039 96 points Decanter

 The best of the Billaud-Simon grands crus in 2017, this comes from old vines on the northern part of slope. It may be unwooded but it's certainly not lacking in flavour or salinity, with considerable complexity and understated power. Drinking Window 2022 - 2033. (TA)  (7/2018)

96 points Vinous

 The 2017 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru bristles with energy and tension. Reticent and shut down, the 2017 is in no mood to show all of its cards just yet; even so, the silky, polished and nuanced texture that is such a Preuses signature is very much in evidence. Crushed flowers, mint, green apple, spice and crushed rocks infuse the beautifully delineated, crystalline finish. This is such a gorgeous and promising wine. (AG)  (1/2020)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A discreet if not mute nose only reluctantly gives up its cool and airy aromas of sea breeze, iodine, mineral reduction and green apple. There is equally lovely purity to the refined and caressing medium weight flavors that possess the best complexity in the range along with excellent length on the well-balanced finale. This is very Preuses in style which is to say an exercise in harmony and elegance.  (10/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Unfurling in the glass with scents of orange blossom, oyster shell and wet stones, the 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a layered, multidimensional mid-palate that's underpinned by a lively spine of acidity, concluding with a precise, stony finish.(WK)  (8/2019)

K&L Notes

92-94 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "From 65-year-old vines, vinified and matured in three stainless steel barrels. Clear bright colour, offering a fresh, phenolic style, fine intensity. Lively with some elegance, a little bit of Preuses suavity, very persistent. This will be an extremely elegant Preuses."
