91 points Tim Atkin, MW (Decanter): "Billaud-Simon have some of the best vineyards in Chablis, from generic right up to Grand Cru level. This highly enjoyable, unoaked white uses fruit from five different parcels and is a very well-balanced white that's typical of the earlier picked cuvées in 2018, combining nectarine and citrus flavours with a hint of boiled sweets and supporting acidity. Drinking Window: 2020-2023. (Jul 2019)"

90 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2018 Chablis is bright, finely sculpted and nuanced, with lovely aromatic complexity and class. Lemon peel, mint and white flowers all grace this very pretty, perfumed entry-level Chablis. The richness and radiance of 2018 are evident, and yet there is a good bit of freshness as well. The Chablis is a blend of estate fruit, purchased fruit and purchased wine, vinified and aged exclusively in tank. Drink: 2020-2033. (Jan 2020)"

90 points Wine & Spirits: "For this wine, Billaud works with vines planted between 1952 and 1987, vinifying the fruit in stainless steel. It offers full-on richness of green pear and ripe apple, lasting on a sunny, gingery buzz in the focused limestone acidity. A contrast of luscious and firm, this will meld those two elements with a few years of bottle age. (Oct 2020)"
