    Lightly creamy and fragrant. Undemonstrative but elegant and a determined structure leads to a long finish. (JH)

    The 2009 Chablis Valmur is wonderfully seductive and harmonious. Today the fruit is radiant and expressive, but there is plenty of minerality underneath. Peaches, flowers, mint and smoke linger on a round, eternal finish graced with exquisite elegance, intensity and power. The acidity is higher here than in Vaudesir, but it certainly doesn't seem that way, at least today. This is from the higher portion of Valmur, with an exposure that runs from east to due south all the way to west. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

    There's a juiciness to this white, though it stays firm and on the lean side. Green apple, green plum, lemon and spice flavors prevail. This is long, with an edge of mineral on the finish. Best from 2013 through 2020. 100 cases imported.

    Very pale green-tinged yellow. Citrus peel, vanilla and toast on the reticent nose. Rich, broad and spicy, with a pronounced yet delicate element of white flowers. Sound acids for the vintage keep it fresh, but this is more open-knit today than the Bougros. The aromatic finish features white flowers and fresh herbs. I don't find the exotic fruit component this wine showed a year ago. Still, it will be at its best before the Bougros.

  • 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.
