The style and elegance of a Saint-Emilion First Classified Growth

A delicate vintage from the Libourne area, Chateau Valandraud 2017 illustrates the dazzling success of an estate that has become one of the First Growths of the Right Bank in the Bordeaux region.

Promoted to First Classified Growth of Saint-Emilion in 2012, Chateau Valandraud has continued to shine over the last vintages. The wines are recognized for their style and their identity just as their owners wanted, who are the passionate couple Murielle Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin.

Chateau Valandraud 2017 shows the brilliance of a Saint-Emilion First Growth. The blend reveals all the generosity of Merlot (90%) with its tasty spiciness and the right touch of Cabernet Franc (10%). Its pure fruit and perfect balance structured with fine tannins breathes the elegance that the estate is known for. Chateau Valandraud 2017 is definitely a superb success of the appellation and it promises a great future.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Valandraud gives up crushed blackcurrants, chocolate-covered cherries and espresso on the nose with hints of licorice, tar and smoked meats. The palate is medium-bodied with a solid frame of ripe, sweet tannins and just enough freshness to contain the bombastic fruit, finishing long and berry-laced.
