Since the creation of his own label, Samuel has met with great success and moved into a new winery space in 2015 as well as purchasing four hectares of vines that had previously belonged to Domaine Billaud-Simon. The resulting range, from AC to Grand Cru, are layered wines rife with crunchy oyster shell and silex, and exhibit a range of flavor profiles from licorice to white peach to toasty baguette. This is top quality Chablis from a rising star producer - for white Burgundy lovers, these are not to be missed.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is another scintillating wine that defies the vintage. Detailed scents of green apple mix with lemon peel and flint, and a hint of mirabelle emerges with time. This has a beguiling symmetry on the palate and gently fans out toward the persistent finish, its salinity urging you back for another sip. Glorious.
