DESCRIPTION

Burghound (Allen Meadows) 94. Don't Miss.

“An extremely deft dash of wood is barely noticeable and merges seamlessly with highly complex if discreet aromas of limestone, lemon, oyster shell, sea breeze and white flowers. This is a big, powerful and incredibly precise wine with magnificent flavor authority and seemingly endless reserves of sappy extract. Tightly wound and still very youthful but the extract buffers the intense acidity and completely coats and stains the palate on the hugely long and intense finish. A knockout Valmur.”

 

Stephen Tanzer 92-94

"Pale, green-tinged color. Explosive, perfumed aromas of mandarin orange, lemon and mint; less jammy than the Vaudesir. Then minerally and saline in the mouth, with terrific cut and energy, not to mention depth of flavor and texture. More strict today than the Vaudesir but this will make a superb bottle. Plenty ripe on the back end, but dominated by minerality in the early going."

 

Wine Advocate (David Schildknecht) 95

"The first grapes picked from the marl-rich upper portion of this site near Vaudesir, Fevre’s 2007 Chablis Valmur nonetheless displays (as in 2006) a dramatically different personality from their Vaudesir. Fresh lime, red currant, tangerine, grapefruit, and peony mingle in a Riesling-like effusion of fruit and flower, underlain by a salty and iodine-tinged mineral soup that seems as deep as the sea. Soundings reveal citrus zest, fruit pits, kelp, pine resin, and oyster shells. This should be an almost inexhaustible source of intrigue and pleasure over the coming decade. You’ll never get to the bottom of it, but so much the better for you and the wine! Fine as the 2006 was, this 2007 seems to illustrate the extent to which slow ripening, high extract, and bright acids best complement Valmur’s inherent character."
