(2016) Only 3000 bottles produced. Quite like the Valmur aromatically, the oak polished and creamy, the fruit fine and not too ripe or showy, with notes of flint and burning embers. The fruit on the palate is so much more open and charming, seductive fruit openness – the most openly seductive Cru so far, but has the saltiness, has the lick of mineral precision too, giving poise and elegance to the long finish. A lovely, concentrated wine from 68-year-old vines.
