The richness of an ample and fruit-forward Saint-Emilion

An iconic Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion, located on the right bank of Bordeaux, Chateau Valandraud has produced a wonderfully successful Saint-Emilion wine, the Virginie de Valandraud.

At the tasting, the Virginie de Valandraud 2018 offers a splendid expression of fruit (notes of black fruit, blackcurrant and plum), along with gourmet notes of chocolate and smoke, evoking dried tobacco leaf, finally evolving notes of undergrowth with truffles. Gourmet and full-bodied, the palate displays a delicious round and fruity texture, structured by ripe and mouth-coating tannins. Full of freshness, the finish persists for a long time, maintaining its beautiful aromatic expression. A great Saint-Emilion, which will evolve perfectly by 2030-2035.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Virginie de Valandraud opens a little broody with notes of damp soil, truffles and chargrill, opening up to display stewed plums, blackberry tart and plum preserves plus nuances of espresso, Marmite toast, tapenade and wild sage. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness lifting the rich, decadent fruit to a long finish.
