Pale yellow. Sexy, expressive aromas and flavors of mirabelle, pineapple, ginger and flint, all lifted by a violet topnote. Dense, rich and quite suave, with a saline element accentuating the impression of soil. A big boy but quite fine; there's nothing heavy about this grand cru. The slowly mounting finish boasts terrific texture and life.
*Don't Miss!" A discreet touch of wood highlights a layered and high-toned white flower, green fruit and oyster shell and mineral suffused nose that complements perfectly the rich, full, dense and penetrating medium full flavors that ooze dry extract, which gives a sappy and textured quality to the vibrant and impressively long finish. A lovely and admirably well balanced effort.
The Moreaus’ 2006 Chablis Valmur is scented with lime, cardamom, crushed stone, white pepper, musky-sweet, narcissus-like florality, and hints of tropical fruit. The themes of pungency, perfume and ripeness continue on the palate, where grapefruit and lime offer refreshment, and toasted nuts and brown spices hint at the influence of barrel as well no doubt as the character of very ripe fruit. Yet for all of its amplitude and honeyed richness, this is highly expressive of dimensions that can only be termed 'mineral,' and pungency here does not preclude a refined texture and a soothing finish. This should be interesting to follow for at least 6-8 years. There are only two and a half barrels of the Moreau 2006 Blanchots, a wine uncomfortably marked by wood and the effects of recent bottling when I tasted it, so that I have elected to defer further description or rating.

Vanilla accents complement the honey and lemon flavors, and a hint of butterscotch creeps in by the finish. There's nice cut and definition, with a touch of anise in the aftertaste.
