Could be the wine of the '97 vintage in Chablis. A seamless work of art, simply mindboggling in its sheer balance. Lovely fruit, earthand mineral, too, but it's the texture that istruly unforgettable

90-93Robert M. Parker Jr.

The 1997 Chablis Valmur is superb. Fresh aromas of groseille (red currants), honeysuckle, and pears..Its flavor profile, crammed with flint, quartz, stones, and a magnificently pure minerality, is complex and impeccably balanced.

The flavors are drier and underpinned by racy and intense acidity. The finish is long, detailed and pure.
