Jean Collet 2010 Chablis Grand Cru "Valmur," Burgundy, France
International Wine Cellar rating: 93...(began in 100% one-, two- and three-year-old barrels, then finished in cuve): Classic aromas of underripe pineapple, mint and wet stone. At once large-scaled and fine-grained, showing terrific intensity to its crunchy citrus and saline flavors. Conveys an impression of density without weight, thanks to its energy. (These vines face full west and ripen late.) At once pliant and filled in, finishing elegant, seamless and long, with a vibrating crushed-stone character."
