A Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Valandraud is one of the most beautiful properties in the appellation.
The Château Valandraud vineyard stretches over 12 hectares of vines in production, planted in clay-limestone and siliceous-gravelly soils. 6.5 hectares of vines are dedicated to the production of this Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé wine. The vines are 30 years old on average
Spared by the spring frost, the vineyard suffered from a significant pressure of cryptogamic diseases due to heavy rainfall until July. The rigour of the teams throughout the vegetative cycle enabled them to preserve the vineyard’s healthy condition up until the grape harvest.
