As hard as it may be to believe Valandraud’s 2001 is better than their 2000. One of the great efforts from proprietors Murielle Andraud and Jean-Luc Thunevin the 2001 Valandraud boasts a saturated plum/purple color as well as a sumptuously sweet nose of Varhona chocolate intertwined with espresso roast blackberries cherry jam and currants.

By the way the kosher cuvee of this wine merits 91-92 points. It is undeniably the finest kosher wine I have ever tasted.</P>
