Tasting Notes

The 2018 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru is matured 50% in barrel and the rest in tank, with just a small percentage of new wood. It has a fresh bouquet that is beautifully defined, hints of jasmine and white flowers, crushed stone and peony developing with time. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, and slightly waxy in texture. A discreet grilled walnut note develops toward the finish. A complex Valmur, this, and reassuringly persistent on the aftertaste.

Neal Martin, vinous.com, September 2020

Once again the wood treatment is generous but it stops short of being intrusive on the nose of mineral reduction, tidal pool and quinine aromas. There is wood on the palate as well as on the concentrated, intense and muscular flavors that deliver fine length on the citrus-tinged and very dry finish. This isn't refined and the wood isn't subtle but once again there is good development potential.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (76), October 2019

80% of their holding of a hectare is from 78 year old vines, exposed south-east, with 20% on the opposite flank. The two slopes were picked together in 2018 which is not always the case. This is quite luxurious with some peaches and yellow plums, 13.4% but in balance. This is ripe aromatically but with no undue heat. Tasted: June 2019
