Chablis Grand Cru Valmur 2017

Domaine Christian Moreau Père & Fils


Terroir: The tiny plot of Grand Cru Valmur sits snuggly between Vaudésir to the north and Les Clos to the south. Domaine Christian Moreau Père et Fils owns a total of 3 acres of this famed terroir. The plot is densely planted (7000 vines per hectare) with vines averaging 50 years old.

Vinification: Up to 50% of the blend spends some time in oak, of which 90% are 2-3 year old barrels. Just 10% is new.

Additional Information

Attractive floral aromas with a hint of honeysuckle, green apple, toast, and mandarin oranges. Extremely well-balanced structure with a crystal clear juicy acidity, layered with minerality. A truly powerful and complex wine.

    "This is tightly wound, displaying a tensile structure that puts the grip on floral, lemon, mineral and vanilla aromas and flavors. A chalky feel emerges on the finish. Shows potential, with all the components in the right proportions. Fine length. Best from 2021 through 2028. 2,500 cases made, 50 cases imported."
