Burghound 93 points - Iris and musky peony along with white peach and grapefruit inform the seductive nose of Moreau’s 2008 Chablis Valmur, which offers a winning combination of richness and textural plushness with refreshment and levity, as well as a strong, chalky undertone that emerges especially in the wine’s long finish. High-toned, metaphorically cooling and soothing herbal impressions add to the allure of wafting inner-mouth floral perfume, while hints of huckleberry and juniper add piquant stimulation. This will reward close to, if not more than, a decade’s consideration.
DOMAINE CHRISTIAN MOREAU
2008 MOREAU CHRISTIAN CHABLIS VALMUR PRE CRU
"An all but invisible touch of wood sets off pure and quite cool green fruit laced with abundant notes of wet stone and tidal pool hints that are also picked up by the textured, intense and precise flavors brimming with extract on the precise and energetic finish that is at once elegant yet displays the hallmark Valmur austerity. This is seriously impressive with almost painful intensity." Burghound.com 93 points
