Vinous – 93/100
The 2021 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru has a discreet and complex bouquet with sea spray and oyster shell, a hint of praline loitering in the background. The palate is well-balanced, with a citrus edge on the entry. Quite saline, but more backward compared to other cuvées and perhaps requiring more time in bottle. I feel this will bide its time, so be prepared.
