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.

    "The 2018 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru is subtle, nuanced and very pretty. Orchard fruit, chamomile, light honeyed notes and an accent of French oak all run through this pliant, racy Valmur. Soft edges add to the wine's considerable immediacy and overall appeal. The 2018 was done in equal parts steel and oak. This is very nicely done."
    Grade: 92-94 points
