TASTING NOTES

"Punch and power with finesse. Quite forward for Valmur, but there's lots in reserve. Retaste after bottling in the summer of 2019." Michael Edwards, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 63

"The 2017 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur was cropped at less than 20 hectoliters per hectare this year, but it remains quite classic in profile, unfurling in the glass with notes of green orchard fruit, lemon oil and anise, framed by light reduction. On the palate, it's full-bodied, glossy and concentrated, with bright acids, a tight-knit core and a long, mineral finish. It's a promising Valmur." William Kelley, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #238

"The 2017 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru, harvested at less than 20hl/ha due to frost, has a clean and precise apple blossom, orange pith and white chocolate-tinged bouquet that gradually opens with time. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, full of tension and with good bite, leading to a saline finish that gets the taste buds going. Very classic in style, this should age nicely in bottle." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"A citrus and mineral reduction tinged nose is comprised mostly of green fruit and honeysuckle nuances. The palate impression is much like that of the Bougros as the big-bodied flavors are dense and muscular while exhibiting excellent power on the only moderately complex if solidly persistent finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, Issue 72
