The fresh and expressive nose offers up notes of strong mineral reduction, green fruit, lemon-lime, tidal pool and oyster shell hints. The full-bodied, rich and muscular big-bodied flavors are succulent and wonderfully textured while delivering outstanding length on the stony, focused and explosive finish. As Raveneau’s Valmur almost always is, this is a powerful and serious wine that will require at least 4 to 5 years of cellaring and reward at least a decade’s worth.

The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has a very backward nose, one of the most laconic of Raveneau’s 2015s at the moment. The palate is powerful and intense with a citric entry, quite tensile in the mouth and regaining its composure to deliver a very harmonious orange zest and white peach-tinged second half that feels very assured. This Valmur is packed with potential. Superb.
