Courtault-Michelet Chablis Grand Cru Valmur
Domaine Courtault-Michelet
France - Burgundy - Chablis Grand Cru

The nose offers rich and intense aromas of rose petals and litchi. The wine is well-structured and generous in the mouth with subtle notes of dried fruits and honey. A long mineral finish.

"Meures" in old French was the name of the 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, and later "Valmur".
