"Alas, there are only two barrels. “I always harvest here late in the afternoon,” says Piuze of his 2012 Chablis Valmur “because the skins are softer and the afternoon lees accentuate what I think the monks who planted and named this site ‘vale of ripeness’ had in mind. That’s why,” he adds – citing this cru’s surprisingly wide discrepancies in exposure – “I wanted fruit from the south-facing portion or nothing.” Scents of woodruff, arbor vitae and grapefruit, resin and nutmeg anticipate the flavors of a sappy, expansive, glycerol-rich palate, leading to a superbly-sustained, complex finish. Here is another of this producer’s grand crus worth following through at least 2024. 92-93 Points/Drink 2013-2024" - David Schildknecht, The Wine Advocate
