Chablis Grand Cru "Valmur" 2007, Moreau-Naudet

Courtesy of the Justerini & Brooks Burgundy 2007 tasting. Chablis grands crus wines are often under-estimated and rarely cellared for long enough to understand their potential. The problem? They often compare badly with the premier crus wines in their first 7 years so tasters wonder why they should pay twice as much. This Valmur spells out the reason for the higher price tag: almond, apricot, an entire fruit tart of chewable ripe stone fruits that evolves to orange and preserved lemon on the palate. This is classic stuff and demonstrably bigger than the premier cru. Imbibe from 2013.
