The power and freshness of a white grand vin from Bordeaux

The white Grand Vin of Chateau Valandraud is produced in limited quantity and the Chateau Valandraud 2018 is one of the most beautiful vintages of the estate, located on the right bank of Bordeaux.

Fruit of a blend of Sauvignon Gris (50%), Sauvignon Blanc (40%) and Semillon (10%), the Chateau Valandraud white 2018 offers a splendid expression of fruit. Powerful, racy and fruity, the aromatic bouquet reveals citrus notes of yuzu and grapefruit, along with gourmet notes of white peach and brioche. Beautiful iodized mineral notes appear next. Vibrating with energy and sustained by a crisp acidity, the palate is packed with the flavour of fruit, with hints of tropical fruit and citrus. The vintage has a beautifully gourmet texture. Offering a nice tension, the end of mouth stretches into a persistent length, tinged with a beautiful minerality. A great vintage of white for Chateau Valandraud, a Bordeaux Blanc Sec accessible in its youth but also promising a beautiful evolution over time in the bottle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Valandraud 2018 Blanc comes sashaying out of the glass with beautiful orange blossoms, beeswax, crushed rocks and lime leaves scents over a core of green guava, pink grapefruit and yuzu. Medium to full-bodied, the palate bursts with citrus and tropical layers, with a satiny texture and fantastic tension, finishing long and mineral laced.
