The fresh and expressive nose offers up notes of green fruit, lemon-lime, tidal pool and oyster shell hints. The full-bodied, rich and muscular big-bodied flavors are succulent and wonderfully textured while delivering outstanding length on the stony, focused and explosive finish. As Raveneau's Valmur almost always is this is a powerful and serious wine that will require at least 4 to 5 years of cellaring. Oct 2016, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2023+

The 2015 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur has a more complex and compelling bouquet than the Blanchot with lively mineral-rich citrus fruit, touches of undergrowth coming through. The palate is very well balanced with impressive density and a fine line of acidity, displaying great depth and cohesion on the finish. This excellent Valmur would not surprise me if it turns out to be Domaine Raveneau's best Grand Cru in 2015. Aug 2016, www.robetparker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

(these vines are now 40 years old): Very pale yellow. Lemon zest, lime blossom and chalk dust on the nose. Boasts superb inner-mouth tension and energy for the year, with taut calcaire minerality and grapefruit zest dominating. A classic youthfully austere Valmur with a whiplash of a vintage that suffuses the palate with lemon and minerals. This will need at least seven or eight years of bottle aging. No hail here.
