Tasted at the Valandraud vertical at the property, the 2000 Valandraud has a very dark color with just a thin crimson rim. The bouquet is exquisite: intense black cherry and blackcurrant scents, sandalwood, cedar and spices, complex and involving, the aromatics appear to just grow and grow. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red and black fruit, fine tannins and perfect acidity. It feels backward but very tensile with a flow of energy towards the precise and deeply impressive finish. This is an outstanding millennial Saint Emilion from Jean-Luc Thunévin. Tasted December 2016. - Neal Martin

Bright medium ruby. Roasted aromas of blackberry black raspberry cherry lead pencil and espresso plus an exotic suggestion of peach. Thick and impressively concentrated with lovely clarity of berry and cherry flavors... Bright medium ruby. Roasted aromas of blackberry black raspberry cherry lead pencil and espresso plus an exotic suggestion of peach. Thick and impressively concentrated with lovely clarity of berry and cherry flavors thanks to firm acidity. Full deep lush and very long with thoroughly ripe sweet tannins suffusing the entire palate. This has the best mouth coverage of any of Thunevin 2000s.

This is really exciting with dark chocolate berry grilled meat and cedar. Full-bodied and silky with lovely berry and mineral character. Goes on for quite a while. Best from Valandraud yet...
