Description

The Valmur vineyard covers around 12 hectares in total and forms a small valley in the heart of the Grand Cru slope. It’s quite literally wedged between Vaudésir and Grenouilles on its left and Les Clos on its right. An extreme mesoclimate, Valmur gets very cold in winter and hotter than average in summer. It’s a site that lends itself to authoritative and intense wines of serious depth and power.

The Domaine farms a 0.6-hectare parcel (worked by horse) that was planted in 1978. Situated next door to the vines of Raveneau, Moreau’s plot is a cooler, shaded site that takes time to warm up. Combined with the steepness of the slope, this leads to the wine’s strong mineral, saline imprint, which shines through the depth and texture. Moreau harvested a tiny crop of just 600 litres this year, and the wine was vinified without any oak, in three stainless steel barrels.

“It is pale yellow in colour with a, soft rich, but enticing nose, which might suggest oak only there is none! Instead the, soft richness of the vintage is dominating. Very long finish though still with, some toasty character.” 91-94 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
