Stephanie et Vincent Michelet Chablis Grand Cru Valmur
Domaine Stephanie et Vincent Michelet
France - Burgundy - Chablis Grand Cru

This Grand Cru Valmur is located between the villages of Clots, Vaudésir and Grenouilles. It benefits from a south-east sun exposure that brings freshness and minerality to the wine.

Valmur takes its name from 'Meures' - the old French name for mulberry fruit or the berries of a bramble. It is likely that this spot was rich in mulberry trees or brambles, and was then called 'Vallee aux meures' (Meures Valley), and later 'Valmur'.

The wine shows a pale golor and rich and intense floral aromas. The palate is well-structured and generous with subtle notes of dried fruits and honey. A long mineral finish.

Chablis Grand Cru
Wine Type
100% Chardonnay
Soil type
Kimmeridgian (limestone rock consisting of a conglomerate of fossils of small coma-shaped oysters)
Machine harvested at full maturity; pneumatic press; fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days; M.L (2 months after the harvest); aging on the lees (3 months more than Petit Chablis); racking; fining if necessary; cold stabilization; filtration right before bottling.

A great match with fine fish in creamy sauce or white meat stuffed with mushrooms. The complex and subtle aromas make this wine and ideal accompaniment to delicate and refined seafood dishes - lobsters and crayfish. Let it age a little and its richness will be appreciated with foie gras.
