Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 94(+?)

($52) Good pale color. A great expression of grand cru soil on the nose: lime, chalk, iodine, mint, toast, smoke, wet stone, mineral salts and honey. Wonderfully rich and lush on the palate, with deep stone, floral and honey flavors given shape and grip by strong acidity. A wine of great texture, purity and persistence, revealing powerful extract on the back end. And a relative value for white Burgundy, as are all of these 2002s: Hervet notes that this is less expensive than Bouchard's Meursault Boucheres, one of that village's lesser premier crus.

Burghound | Rating: 91-94

(from a parcel of vines that is close to Vaudésir and extends all the way from Grenouilles to the tree line at the top of the hill) A deft and stylish touch of oak blends with pretty, extremely elegant and pure, stony aromas leading to extremely ripe, wonderfully balanced flavors of incredible intensity underpinned by a solid, indeed bracing lemon-infused acidity and an austere, dusty and dry finish. There is real volume here and this is just flat out great with the overall harmony to age gracefully for years.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91

The creamed mineral-scented 2002 Chablis Valmur (domaine) is a light to medium-bodied, feminine wine. Its crystalline character offers flint and seashell flavors that linger in its lengthy finish. This silky-textured, highly focused effort is a candidate for drinking between 2006 and 2012.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay


Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
