"The 2014 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur about an equal blend of barrel and tank, was showing just a touch of reduction on the nose, though underneath one can detect the uncompromising granite and flinty scents waiting to take center stage. The palate is a little more rounded in texture than the Vaudésir: very good intensity with orange zest and a touch of apricot toward the elegant and poised finish. This is a class act and another great grand cru '14 from winemaker, Fabien Moreau. Fabien and his father Guy Moreau were there to greet me on what was my final visit during my week in Chablis. We sought refuge from the scorching temperatures in their air conditioned vat-room where I was poured the bottled 2013s and 2014s due for bottling later this year. That was actually one of the first points of our long conversation. Christian Moreau was adamant that the 2014s deserve longer aging in barrel and derided those that rushed to bottle them in order to compensate any shortfall in 2013. I would agree."

"Once again there is enough oak present to remark on though not so much to mask the green fruit, pear and abundant Chablis character that includes oyster shell and tidal pool nuances. The big, indeed even burly flavors exhibit excellent richness and mid-palate concentration as well as seriously impressive power and persistence on the slightly rustic finale. "
