Wine Advocate
Exuberantly sweetly-fruited, the Billaud 2008 Chablis Vaudesir is redolent of and brims with purple plum, pineapple, quince and peach, hauntingly wreathed in gentian and violet perfume. Liquid perfume carries all the way across the glossy, plush palate, while peach kernel bitterness, salinity, and chalkiness add to a complex, interactive finish. Here is one of those 2008 Chablis that put me in mind of Riesling in its primary fruit intensity, perfume, and dynamic. Fusil, bittersweetly herbal, and downright stony notes are seamlessly integrated into and help extend the finish of this beauty, apt to be worth following for at least a decade. Bernard Billaud agreed this year to show me his young grand crus in advance of their anticipated May or June bottling, even though they were on their finings. In addition, I was able to have my first taste of his 2007 grand crus.

A discreet hint of sulfur is also present here as well but does not significantly detract from the wonderfully classic and densely fruited Chablis nose that slides gracefully into the rich, full and overtly muscular flavors that possess superb intensity, particularly on the focused, long and mineral-infused finish where a saline note surfaces. This is a powerful example of Vaudésir but it does not lack for elegance either.
