Christian Moreau "Valmur" 2012


95pts WA-This wine was tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur is a knockout wine that under tough blind conditions trumped its peers and surpassed my own expectations. It has a delightful and engaging bouquet with honeysuckle and flint aromas, is beautifully defined, focused, very poised and sophisticated. The palate is fresh and engaging, rounded and quite rich, and flattering at this early stage with peach and citrus lemon fanning out on the finish; there are residues of honey on the long aftertaste. I believe the expression is “killer juice.”
