TASTING NOTES

"Pale, slightly hazy yellow. Very ripe but discreet nose hints at spices, anise and lichee. Glyceral and rich, but with surprising citrussy acidity to shape the exotic fruit and lichee flavors. A powerful, dense yet silky wine from marl soil, this was picked at close to 13% potential alcohol. Finishes with an impression of solidity but this is hard to taste today." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com

"A ripe yet restrained nose combines notes of both green and white fruit with those of tidal pool and discreet but not invisible wood influence. The dense, powerful and imposingly scaled flavors brim with dry extract that largely buffers the moderately firm acid spine shaping the clean, tension-filled and relatively dry finish that is slightly better balanced as well." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 68

"The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur was more closed than the Vaudésir on the nose and perhaps at this nascent stage does not exude the same charm. The palate is balanced and quite concentrated thanks to the yield at just 13 to 14 hectoliters per hectare. It improves toward the second half with an attractive fresh pear and white pepper-tinged finish, although it feels a little gruff and broody at the moment."
