The Valmur vineyard covers around 12 hectares in total and forms a small valley in the heart of the Grand Cru slope. It’s wedged between Vaudésir and Grenouilles to its left and Les Clos to its right. It’s a site that gets very cold in winter and hotter than average in summer, producing authoritative and intense wines of serious depth and power.

Moreau-Naudet farms a 0.6-hectare parcel (worked by horse) planted in 1978. Situated next door to the vines of Raveneau, Moreau’s plot is a cooler, more shaded site. Combined with the steepness of the slope, this leads to the wine’s strong mineral, saline imprint, which shines through the depth and texture. Again, Moreau harvested a tiny crop this year—unfortunately, these vines were not spared from the April frost. So, meagre yields make this gem even rarer than usual. The wine was vinified without any oak, in three stainless steel ‘barrels’.

Reviews

“As with her other wines, Virginie's work is the definition of precision. She admirably is very, very specific about each of her choices with each of her wines. The result here is sheer joy in a glass. It is citrusy and spicy with a finessed, smooth palate feel and scintillating acidity. The notably long finish is elegant and perfectly in place already. These 60 ares of Moreau-Naudet vines sit between those of Raveneau and Vocoret.”
95 points, Christy Canterbury MW, Tim Atkin Burgundy 2021 Special Report
“The 2021 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur transcends the challenges of the vintage, unfurling in the glass with notes of orange oil, crisp green apple, peach, freshly baked bread and beeswax, followed by a full-bodied, satiny and layered palate of impressive depth and concentration. Racy and incisive, it concludes with a citrus blossom-inflected finish’”
