2019 Domaine Christian Moreau Valmur Chablis Grand Cru
A deft application of wood serves as a neutral but not imperceptible backdrop for the exotic and lemon-suffused aromas of pear, apple and iodine. There is fine volume and outstanding richness to the dense, muscular and powerful large-scaled flavors that terminate in an agreeably dry, sappy and beautifully long finish. This is a classic Valmur controlled power that is clearly built for mid to even longer-term cellaring.

The 2019 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru was cropped at 25hl/ha from 45- to 70-year-old vines and matured in a mixture of 1- to 4-year-old barrels, for bottling in 2021. This has a very perfumed and slightly better-defined bouquet than the Blanchot. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, ripe but tense with superb mineralité already in evidence. Focused all the way through to the lingering finish, this is an outstanding Valmur in the making.
Neal Martin - Vinous
24 hl/ha, so all has been made in wood, just blended, so the wine has not fallen clear yet. The bouquet shows class however, with a welcome tightness of approach, Perhaps a touch of sulphur. Plenty of colour beneath though. This is very pure, less Côte d’Orien than, sometimes, but there is a racy shellfish underlay. Finesse and intensity, not as broad based
