Stephen Tanzer Int'l Wine Cellar, Jul/Aug 2007
Exotic spice notes complicate the grapefruit and pineapple fruitiness on the nose; a bit less exuberant today than the Vaudesir, with hints of menthol and licorice. Then drier and more serious in the mouth, offering classic flavors of citrus peel, menthol, licorice and minerals. A very dense, fresh wine with a brisk, palate-staining back end. The crop level here was a very low 30 hectoliters per hectare, notes director Stephane Follin-Arbelet, who pointed out that although yields ranged from 30 to 50 hectoliters across the house's holdings in '06, most of the cru bottlings come from old vines affected by a good bit of crop-reducing coulure 92-94 points

Here the beautifully expressive nose is even more elegant but as Valmur almost always is, the aromas are restrained, cool, refined and practically shout "Chablis" as the saline and oyster shell notes add real depth to the classic green fruit and floral aromas. As the low yields would suggest, this is one concentrated wine with an opulent mouth feel yet no loss of detail on the iodine-infused and austere finish that seems to go on and on. Terrific and by the standards of this wine, it should be approachable a year or two sooner than usual.  92-94 points
