Collet Chablis Grand Cru “Valmur” 2016


As with much Grand Cru Chablis, Collet’s Valmur is raised in oak; but the wine handles it beautifully. The wood melts effortlessly into the lemony perfume, adding a rich background for the classic burst of acidity and minerals. The mouthfeel is remarkably long and dense, a real testament to the power found in top class white wine.

BURGHOUND, 90-93 pts: An interesting hint of muscat adds breadth to the green fruit, citrus zest, rose petal and the best Chablis typicity of any of these 2016s. The opulent yet almost painfully intense broad-shouldered flavors possess a highly textured mouth feel while delivering impressive persistence on the balanced finale. This will need a few years of cellaring to better develop depth but this is very promising.
