Chablis Grand Cru “Valmur”

Chablis Grand Cru “Valmur” bottle

The law regarding the grands crus was published in 1938. The production area covers about 250 acres on the right side of the Serein River, enjoying an optimum south/south-eastern exposure. There are seven appellations which have contributed to the worldwide notoriety of the great Chablis white wines: Les Clos, Vaudésir, Valmur, Blanchot, Les Preuses, Grenouilles and Bougros.

The named plot Valmur covers 30 acres, forming a small valley in the heart of the production area. It is next to Les Clos and lies between Vaudésir to the north and Grenouilles to the south, and like every grand cru, belongs to the Chablis commune. Valmur enjoys subtle altitude and exposure differences and therefore produces wines with more versatility than the other grands crus.

Some richness and oak influence. There’s a refined, white-peach edge and some plush fruit flesh, as well as a long powerful, tube-like drive through the finish. Terrific wine.
  • Winemaking

    Aged for 9 months in oak barrels.

  • Nose

    An elegant and mineral nose with hints of nut and peach.

  • Palate

    Full, with flavors of white fruits and bitter almond. A refreshing acidity typical for a young wine, which will soften with time.
