Description

A Saint-Émilion Second Wine with wonderful freshness and finesse

The estate

As Saint-Émilion's Premier Grand Cru Classé, Château Valandraud is one of the finest estates in the appellation. The cuvée Virginie de Valandraud offers remarkable value for money and is made from a selection of the estate's younger vines.

The vineyard

Virginie de Valandraud is a Saint-Émilion wine made from vines planted in clay-limestone and silica-gravel soils. The vines are on average 30 years old. The area harvested to produce this wine is 15 hectares.

The wine

Virginie de Valandraud is the estate’s Second Wine.

The vintage

A mild, dry winter preceded an early April marked by a few frosts which had no impact on the vineyards. Despite low rainfall, the clay-limestone soils allowed the vines to retain moisture and avoid water stress. Despite their small size, the grapes were harvested at optimum ripeness.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvested by hand. The wine is aged for 18 to 22 months in 100% new barrels.

Blend

Merlot (80%)
Cabernet Franc (15%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (5%)
