“The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur wafts from the glass with faintly musky aromas of mandarin, lemon oil, green apple and wheat toast, framed by a touch of spicy new oak. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, blocky and layered, with a deep core, juicy acids and a long, saline finish. It’s a powerful wine that will benefit from some bottle age.”

92+ points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Aug 2018

 

“The core flavours of peach, apple and lemon are framed by spicy oak in this taut, tensile white. Focused, lingering with lemon and spice notes on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2025…”

92 points, Wine Spectator, Sept 2018

 

“The 2016 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru has a tightly wound bouquet with attractive pressed white flower, honeysuckle and light linseed oil aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a fine line of acidity, although this is one where I find their oak impeding towards the finish, so I will err on the side of caution with regard to my score. Give this three or four years for that to be fully subsumed.”
