    Moderate wood stops short of fighting with the ripe aromas of white peach, melon, algae and citrus rind whiffs. The slightly richer and more imposingly-scaled big-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that confers a sappy texture to the more powerful if slightly less mineral-driven finale.

    The 2016 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has an attractive bouquet with scents of dried pineapple, quince and a touch of melted candle waxquite pithy in style. The palate is well balanced with a crisp entry and a fine line of acidity cutting through the lightly honeyed fruit, leading to an attractive, precise finish that lingers long in the mouth. Excellent.

    Grade: 92-94 Points
