Chablis Valmur, Patrick Piuze 2018
Piuze's 2018 Chablis Grand Cru Valmur is showing very well, opening in the glass with a complex bouquet of fresh peach, oatmeal, white flowers and mandarin. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and layered, with all the depth, concentration and blocky reserve that typically distinguish this bottling, buttressed by impressively racy acids and concluding with a precise finish.
|Score: 94||William Kelley, RobertParker.com (233), August 2019|
A discreet background application of wood frames ripe and airy aromas of green fruit, white flower, citrus and shellfish nuances. The rich, powerful and admirably concentrated medium weight plus flavors possess an abundance of dry extract that coats the palate on the robust, indeed even borderline rustic finale. As one would reasonably expect this bold effort will need a few years to better harmonize.
