October 1, 201093 An all but invisible touch of wood sets off pure and quite cool green fruit laced with abundant notes of wet stone and tidal pool hints that are also picked up by the textured, intense and precise flavors brimming with extract on the precise and energetic finish that is at once elegant yet displays the hallmark Valmur austerity. This is seriously impressive with almost painful intensity.
October 201092 Iris and musky peony along with white peach and grapefruit inform the seductive nose of Moreau’s 2008 Chablis Valmur, which offers a winning combination of richness and textural plushness with refreshment and levity, as well as a strong, chalky undertone that emerges especially in the wine’s long finish. High-toned, metaphorically cooling and soothing herbal impressions add to the allure of wafting inner-mouth floral perfume, while hints of huckleberry and juniper add piquant stimulation. This will reward close to, if not more than, a decade’s consideration.

July 201092 Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, mirabelle, hazelnut and gingerbread. Tactile and concentrated, with excellent energy to the bright lemon, spice and toast flavors. There's a suggestion of opulence here but also an element of austerity. Finishes very long, dry and laid-back, with a light saline component and a lingering spice quality. I'd give this wine a good five years in the cellar; it's the highest in acidity of these 2008s at 5.1 grams.
May 1, 201192 This Valmur is broad, soft, rich, with less mineral character than some Grand Crus. What is does offer is open, accessible white fruits, melon, warm toast and a very fine acidity.
Web Only - 201092 Intense and tightly wound, offering concentrated lemon, apple, spice and chalk aromas and flavors. This keeps building on the palate, changing as it finishes with a flourish of mineral. Very dry and savory. Best from 2013 through 2028. 300 cases made.
