94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2018 Chablis Les Preuses Grand Cru, which comes from 60-year-old vines and spends 18 months on the fine lees, has a vibrant, energetic nose, presenting flint and smoke at first, then subtle dried white flowers soon after, but maintaining a sense of classicism at all times. The palate is very well balanced with peach and nectarine notes on the entry, razor-sharp acidity effortlessly counterbalancing the richness of this Les Preuses. It keeps its foot on the accelerator right to the end. An outstanding Les Preuses from Samuel Billaud. Drink: 2022-2040. (Sep 2020)"

93 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "Wafting from the glass with inviting aromas of orange oil, citrus blossom and nutmeg, the 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Les Preuses is full-bodied, satiny and sensuous, with an enveloping core of fruit, racy acids and a long, mineral finish. This is another beautiful wine from Samuel Billaud, and it's already quite demonstrative. Drink: 2020-2035. (Jul 2020)"
