International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92($90; domain bottling) Pale yellow-green. Ripe aromas of peach and spice, with hints of exotic fruits. Sweet, dense and spicy, with a very firm acid spine currently keeping the wine's fruit in check. There's a silkiness of texture here, but I find this a bit youthfully disjointed today. Perhaps less pristine than the 2008 version but long on the finish. This needs time to harmonize.Author: Stephen TanzerIssue: July/August 2009
Burghound | Rating: 94An extremely deft dash of wood is barely noticeable and merges seamlessly with highly complex if discreet aromas of limestone, lemon, oyster shell, sea breeze and white flowers. This is a big, powerful and incredibly precise wine with magnificent flavor authority and seemingly endless reserves of sappy extract. Tightly wound and still very youthful but the extract buffers the intense acidity and completely coats and stains the palate on the hugely long and intense finish. A knockout Valmur.Author: Allen MeadowsIssue: 4th Quarter, 2009
Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17Fine, pretty restrained but there's a delicate lemon cream touch. Lightly mineral, direct, very crisp, correct. (JH)Author: Julia Harding MW
Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The first grapes picked from the marl-rich upper portion of this site near Vaudesir, Fevre's 2007 Chablis Valmur nonetheless displays (as in 2006) a dramatically different personality from their Vaudesir. Fresh lime, red currant, tangerine, grapefruit, and peony mingle in a Riesling-like effusion of fruit and flower, underlain by a salty and iodine-tinged mineral soup that seems as deep as the sea. Soundings reveal citrus zest, fruit pits, kelp, pine resin, and oyster shells. This should be an almost inexhaustible source of intrigue and pleasure over the coming decade. You'll never get to the bottom of it, but so much the better for you and the wine! Fine as the 2006 was, this 2007 seems to illustrate the extent to which slow ripening, high extract, and bright acids best complement Valmur's inherent character.Author: David Schildknecht
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.
