The slopes of the Valmur vineyard, like those of all the Grands Crus vines, are located on the right bank of the Serein River. This terroir forms a valley between Les Clos and Vaudésir. Planted at 7000 vines/ha, with the vines averaging 50 years old. Grapes are harvested by hand then carried by small trailers which unload the grapes by vibration to avoid crushing. Hand sorted, 55% of the ageing process is done in stainless vats with the remaining 45% in barrels (90% in 1, 2 and 3 years old barrels, 10% in new and 1 year old barrels) for a period of six months. Natural tartaric stabilisation after 12 months of ageing. This smallest of the Grand Cru vineyards produces a beautiful, delicate wine – crisp apple and apricot on the palate with a toasty, acidity on the finish.
