Billaud-Simon’s 2011 Chablis Preuses – from vines planted in 1952 – displays earthy and intriguing suggestions of urchin roe, musky narcissus, and fresh lemon. Richly-textured yet persistently bright, it draws on the sort of sweetly-saline crustacean character so memorably frequent from this cru to generate a finish of mouthwatering temptation and profound depth. This is a fine example of what some will consider the peculiarities – or perhaps even the slightly off-putting exoticism – of Preuses. The rest of us would do well to employ some of this secret weapon at table over the coming decade. - David Schildknecht

The 2011 Chablis Les Preuses is typical Preuses. Gunpowder, salt, lime, white flowers and an array of white stone fruits are all found in the glass.

Gunpowder, salt, lime, white flowers and an array of white stone fruits are all found in the glass. There is plenty of energy and purity in the Preuses, but the vintage has also given the wine an extra dimension of creaminess that makes it surprisingly accessible for a young Grand Cru. This is another delicious 2011 from Billaud-Simon. Although approachable today, it is also pretty clear the 2011 is currently showing just a hint of its ultimate potential. -- Antonio Galloni
