2015 Courtault-Michelet Chablis Grand Cru Valmur

Producer: Domaine Courtault-Michelet
Country/Region: 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 Vallée aux meures, and later "Valmur".

Wine Making Notes:

Machine harvested at full maturity (around Sept. 25th - lasts 12-18 days); pneumatic press; fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days; M.L (2 months after the harvest); aging on the lees until May (3 month extra compared to the Petit Chablis); racking; fining if necessary; cold stabilization; filtration right before bottling in July.


Pairings:

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.
