The appetizing nose on this wine offers creamy, nutty and lemon-scented freshness. The palate adds supersmooth, juicy ripeness that suggests yellow apple, juicy Mirabelle and a touch of honey from the ripeness of 2018. There is wonderful freshness, however, and cool, chalky depth that turns this into a balanced, rounded, mouthwatering wine with real dimension. The finish is zesty and long. Drink 2022–2040. (AK)
The 2018 Valmur was assembled in July and was to be bottled in early December. The wine is showing excellent potential on both the nose and palate, with the bouquet wafting from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, a touch of paraffin, orange blossoms, a fine base of chalky soil tones and just a hint of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and quite primary in personality today, with an excellent core, bright acids, fine focus and grip and a long, nascently complex and very promising finish. 93+
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. (NM)
A southeast parcel that has such effortless, smooth build and impressive length of peaches and mangoes with apricots and a robust, flowing finish.
The 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur is showing well, offering up a reserved bouquet of orchard fruit and oyster shell, framed by a delicate touch of toasty oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with excellent concentration and a long, stony finish. (WK)
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.
