“The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has another winning bouquet of white flowers, hints of white chocolate and roasted almond all very well defined, perhaps the mineralité not quite as present as the Vaudésir. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, tightly wound and focused with green apple, Cornice pear and a dab of ginger on the focused finish. Unlike the Vaudésir this will require more ageing, 4-5 years if possible.”

(91-93) points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Aug 2016

 

“(50% barriques, including 3% new): A complex nose featuring peach and mineral aromas leads to a dense, tightly wound palate conveying more acidity and punch than the Vaudésir. A menthol element contributes to the backward impression. Finishes dry, classic and long.”

(91-93) points, Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, July 2016

 

“Peach, lanolin, vanilla and sweet baking spice notes herald this elegant white, converging on the pinpoint, lemony  nish. Excellent length. Drink now through 2024.”

92 points, Wine Spectator, May 2017

 

“All but invisible wood easily allows the pure nose of green fruit, iodine and sea breeze aromas to be appreciated. There is excellent power to the rich, intense and focused flavors that possess a lovely sense of energy on the textured and palate coating finish that is borderline rustic. Drink 2020+.”
