Description

“Being the 6th generation of the family producing wines was and still is a challenge for me, trying to avoid the pressure you could have with this “wine heritage”. But with the quality of the vineyard that my family passed on, the basis of the expression of our wines is here, and our work is to honour our terroirs. Looking back on what we did since the first vintage in 2002 with my father and our team, I am very proud of all the work we did together, to increase step by step, the quality and the typicity of our wines. With respect to the persons, of nature, and with humility, we will continue this way and face all the new challenges in front of us. As my father says, “Chablis is unique”, and our goal is to show it!”

Review

Once again there is an admirably discreet wood influence hovering in the background of the essence of pear, green fruit, seashore, and saltwater brine aromas. There is outstanding intensity to the muscular, powerful, and more concentrated big-bodied flavours that conclude in a super-sleek, clean and bone-dry finale that delivers sneaky good length as the finish terminates and then reemerges. Lovely and very Valmur in style.

Tasting Profile

Palate
The little valley between two other grand crus (Les Clos and Vaudesir), Valmur is definitely a terroir mainly composed of clays. Our two parcels benefit from two exposures: 70 acres southeast and 30 acres northeast (1 ha in total). Our vines are more than 60 years old. They produce a very full-bodied and powerful wine. Overall, there is very good freshness and verve to the wines plus they have a certain tenderness that the bigger and more robust 2019s don't have. They should be approachable on the younger side, but the balance is so good that they should age well too.
