It can be hard for Chablis Grand Cru to reach our top 50 Best In Show, as high-quality examples of this unique Chardonnay style tend to begin life inarticulately, saving their pleasures and allusions for later…when they are no longer commercially available. Happily, that’s not at all true for this fine Valmur: it smells alluringly sour and stony, recalling cold dug clay and plant sap rather than fruits, which is just what we want great Chablis to do. On the palate, it is tart and fresh … yet, as the wine finds the warmth of the tongue, full and sinewy too, with lots more sappiness and just a whisper of full-throttle fruit. You know there will be more to come, but this Grand Cru really does give you a peep of its future.
