    ($80) White flowers and lemon cream on the nose, with a whiff of ginger. Penetrating, tight and steely in the middle palate, with a mineral austerity calling for six to eight years of cellaring. Best today on the resounding finish, which saturates the palate with spices and stone.

    As one might expect, this is not only more elegant but it's the most elegant wine in the entire lineup, closely challenged only by the Les Clos. The perfumed, high-toned and classically styled nose features subtle spice, floral, reserved green fruit cut with oyster shell and iodine notes plus that unmistakable sea salt nuance that says |Chablis!| leads to textured and superbly defined, refined and focused flavors that are crystalline in character, all wrapped in an explosively long finish that is like rolling pebbles around in the mouth. While there are several wines in this range that may rival the Valmur qualitatively, this is a one seriously stunning wine and in particular, the transparency and harmony of expression are worth the price of admission alone. Highly recommended and this should age well for up to a decade, perhaps a bit longer.

    Fine. Mineral. Pure and sleek. Lovely concentration and density.

    Sage leaves, rosemary, quartz, and iodine are found in the nose of the 2004 Chablis Valmur (domaine). A wine of awe-inspiring precision as well as depth, it coats the palate with sea shells, minerals, fresh herbs, and liquefied rocks. Though I freely admit to having a special fondness for the Valmur vineyard, this wine hits the taster deep in the soul. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.

The Fevre family has been an integral part of the Chablis landscape for upwards of 250 years. Since the beginning, though, they have been adamant about protecting and promoting the typicity of Chablis, whose whites draw a unique and well-defined line in the sand when it comes to mineral-laden French Chardonnay. The grand crus from this estate represent the pinnacle of purity and intensity of world-class Chardonnay from France and are characterized by superb delineations of acidity, mineral, crystalline fruit and delicate floral nuance.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
