Mary Taylor a negociant sources from individual producers, grapes are from Jean Marc Barthez, a small co-op in Entre-Deux-Mers region. Blend of 95% sauvignon blanc and 5% semillon, pale lemon color with aromas of citrus and tropical fruits with grassy floral notes. On the palate flavors of peach, grapefruit and melon with floral herb notes. Medium finish ending with fruit, herb and citrus notes, lively acidity with slight mineral character. — 12 days ago
The 2021 Chablis Valmur Grand Cru, aged in foudres, takes time to unfurl on the nose with touches of asparagus and nettle, well-defined if rather austere at the moment. The palate is well-defined with a slightly peachy entry. Lightly spiced and harmonious with those foudres allowing the terroir to drive the finish. I can see this having broad appeal, and it should drink without too much bottle age. (Neal Martin, Vinous, September 2023)

Orange. Delish. $35 from waves. — a month ago
Fine village level red, but rather disappointing after their fantastic 1er Cru La Dominode — 2 months ago
Nice blast of dark fruit. Tight but opens up — 10 days ago
So young and primary but shows the substance of 18. Nose is so mineral and deep with dark red cherry and mid season cherry and wonderful, expressive minerality. A deep earthy scent as well. Really wonderful depth on this. Palate is juicy and explosive with endless depth and super primary red and black cherry fruit. Super concentrated, structured with a huge, mineral and acid backbone: An epic Dominode. Wait a decade. At least.
Wow on day 2 this is so good. Smoothed out and full of fruit and silky yet substantial tannins. 9.4 to 9.5 overnight. I continue to strongly believe in the 18’s. They are modern day 93’s but better and more overall success across vignerons and appellations.
