Notes about product

The Chablis Grand Cru Valmur forms a valley which offers subtle variations in terms of exposure: one part faces Northwest and the other the South. With a well-balanced mineral character, the Valmur is imposes strength and surprising fruitiness into the wine.

Tasting notes

Aromas of lemon with hints of pepper, spice, and toasted notes. These aromas lend to the palate along with flavour of liquorice and buttery brioche. Serve with seafood, shellfish, and white meat, either grilled or in a cream sauce.

Reductive smokiness still clings to lemon and yeast notes on this wine's nose. The palate has smoky allure from oak, with a textured midpalate that speaks of yeast, citrus pith and depth. Chalky concentration spreads cooling freshness despite the year's ripeness. While this wine is rounded and sonorous, it is also vivid and fresh, with a lemony, chalky and textured finish that lasts.

The 2018 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru is a fabulous wine that captures the natural richness of this site while retaining a good bit of freshness as well. Lemon confit, white flowers and a discreet touch of oak all marry together in this very pretty and expressive Chablis. Beautifully lifted aromatics round things out in style.
