(92-94 points) Smoky and mildly exotic aromas consist of matchstick, iodine, algae and ripe white and yellow-fleshed fruit.

The mouth feel of the middle weight flavors is even finer if perhaps not quite as dense though the stony finish is notably more complex, at least at present. This is very good and worth a look.

This has a very expressive, yellow-fruit nose with peaches, mangoes and apricots, as well as sweet flowers and fresh almonds. The palate has rich, round and mouth-filling, soft and supple fruit flesh. Delicious, full finish. Drink on release or hold.

The 2018 Chablis Vaudésir Grand Cru is cut from a similar cloth to the Valmur, though I find that it does not possess the same tension or race.

The bouquet offers satisfying intensity, featuring honeysuckle, passion fruit and touches of lemon, though I miss the mineralité and terroir expression that I find in other vintages. The palate is powerful and delivers plenty of finely tuned tropical fruit, though again, the essence of "Chablis-ness," its DNA, is partly erased by vintage expression. A thoroughly enjoyable Chablis, though not a memorable one. -- Neal Martin
