Domaine Courtault-Michelet

Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

    • Description :

      "Meures" in old French was the name of the mulberry fruit or the berries of a bramble. It is likely that this spot was rich in mulberry trees or brambles, and was then called Vallée aux meures, and later Valmur. From the best terroirs of Chablis, South-facing on slopes where the Kimmeridgian soil appears, the Chablis Grand Cru is a wine with exceptional aging potential, perfectly balanced, where the Chardonnay is expressed in wonderful variations.
      Vineyard location: Near the village of Beine, facing the lake. Vineyards are in organic conversion.
      Grapes are 100% destemmed. 12 months in oak barrel. Filtered and fined.
      Aging potential: 10 years

      Tasting notes :

      Generously perfumed with honey, dried fruits, rose and litchi. Richly structured on the palate, the finish is powerfully textured with earthy mineral complexity. A perfect pairing with fine fish in cream sauce or white meat stuffed with mushrooms.
