Production area

The climat occupies a central position on the Grands Crus hillside. Less homogeneous than some of its counterparts, it draws its identity from the variety of its exposures and the depth of its soils. Its shape is reminiscent of a valley, hence the name "Valmur". A close relative of the Clos, it is nevertheless distinguished by its greater strength and very square structure.


Its location, offering subtle variations of exposition and altitude, enable more varied wines to be produced here than in the other vineyards.
Chalky scree slopes overlying Kimmeridgian marl. The soil is heavy and is strewn with small fossilized oysters known as “Exogyra Virgula”.


100% Chardonnay
