"4-6 months on lees in barrels for 60-70% of the wine. Intense and lightly spiced on the nose. Deep, ripe citrus in that restrained Chablis framework. Rich and almost mealy in the mouth with a fine, sour freshness and stoniness on the finish."
Jancis Robinson, January 2014 93-94 points!
"Fevre's 2012 Chablis Valmur reflects a yield of just 18 hectoliters per hectare, this parcel's always shy-bearing vines having " despite their relatively high altitude " been clobbered by frost. Clay-rich soil here typically serves for acid retention and that is certainly apparent. A multiplicity of mineral elements including chalk, salt and fusil oils suffuse a bright matrix of lemon and lime, and the sense of energy conveyed here " along with the wine's sheer refreshment " is enhanced by an impression of levity that you might imagine more likely from a premier cru. Transparency to nuance insures that I keep finding new features as I return to the glass. Green tea and smoky black tea elements alike add to the complexity of this beauty's stimulatingly lingering finish."
