An all but invisible touch of wood sets off pure and quite cool green fruit laced with abundant notes of wet stone and tidal pool hints that are also picked up by the textured intense and precise flavors brimming with extract on the precise and energetic finish that is at once elegant yet displays the hallmark Valmur austerity. This is seriously impressive with almost painful intensity.

Iris and musky peony along with white peach and grapefruit inform the seductive nose of Moreau's 2008 Chablis Valmur which offers a winning combination of richness and textural plushness with refreshment and levity as well as a strong chalky undertone that emerges especially in the wine's long finish. High-toned metaphorically cooling and soothing herbal impressions add to the allure of wafting inner-mouth floral perfume while hints of huckleberry and juniper add piquant stimulation. This will reward close to if not more than a decade's consideration.

Tactile and concentrated with excellent energy to the bright lemon spice and toast flavors. There's a suggestion of opulence here but also an element of austerity. Finishes very long dry and laid-back with a light saline component and a lingering spice quality. I'd give this wine a good five years in the cellar; it's the highest in acidity of these 2008s at 5.1 grams.
