An unexpected stunner


David was unable to join us this weekend but that did not prevent him from drinking a great bottle and sending over his impressions.

Having to work over the long weekend is no joy. Picked up some diver scallops for dinner and decided a Chablis would be a fine pairing.

2007 Jean-Marc Brocard, Chablis Grand Cru Valmur
An unexpected stunner. Gold in color. A nose of the sea. Some lime. A lot of minerality. Chalk and shells. Bone dry and lip smacking. Really long. This is a great Valmur from a producer that doesn’t have the panache of the trendy vignerons. The wine is well on the way to secondary development. Will hold for five more years, easy. In a great spot now.
