    Winemaker's Notes:

    Made of 100% Chardonnay grapes that are harvested by hand and grown on vines averaging 50 years old.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A less forthcoming but similar nose that is trimmed in discreet oak treatment marries into richer yet more detailed middle weight flavors that are admirably fresh and pure before culminating in a palate staining, balanced and driving finish of striking length, excellent purity and moderate austerity. This is a big and robust Valmur that should make for a really lovely wine in a few years.

    Bright lemon-yellow color; less gold than the Blanchot and Vaudesir. Reticent nose hints at soft citrus fruits and ripe pear. Large-scaled, sweet and rich if a bit youthfully inexpressive today. Firm mineral-driven acidity carries and lifts the finish of this impressively structured 2009. Lots of potential here, but in need of at least a couple years of bottle aging.

    International Wine Cellar

    This cohesive white offers intensity to its apple, green plum and citrus flavors. The structure shows on the finish, as citrus and a hint of vanilla chime in on the aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2020. 300 cases imported.
