2014 Valandraud 75CL
Delivers a gorgeous display of fruit, with boysenberry, raspberry and blackberry coulis notes that are fresh and racy, allied to a graphite spine and framed judiciously with a well-singed apple wood accent. This has a lot of coiled-up energy.
Once 'garagiste', now a First Classified Growth, Château Valandraud is the main achievement of a wine obsessed couple, Jean Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud. Château Valandraud was born in 1991 on vineyard bought with all the couple's savings. This small vineyard is situated in the Fongaban Valley, in the Pavie Macquin / La Clotte neighbourhood and this is where 'Valandraud' comes from: 'Val' (Valley) + 'Andraud (Murielle's family name, which appears on the Saint Emilion's registry since 1459).
Excellence is also reached by combining tradition, innovation, and respect of the environment. This is the way they have chosen to work for now over 10 years, paving the way to what is now better known as 'biocontrol'. Each vintage is the sum of all the dedication and hard work done by a whole team to offer you the best of its abilities.
Château Valandraud has thus earned kudos from both professional critics and amateurs. The wine is regularly acclaimed for its harmonious complexity, its depth and intensity, but also for its display of fruit, its freshness, velvety texture and finesse.
