The Virginie de Valandraud has a very pure lifted bouquet with black cherries blueberry and crème de cassis opulent but well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity on the entry and firm grippy tannins good weight and structure for the vintage with a pleasant dryness to the finish. Very fine.

Medium to full-bodied and pure with a distinctive chocolate/coffee character it should be enjoyed over the next 15+ years.

Second wine of Valandraud. Full and silky with polished tannins and rich berry citrus and sliced plum character. A little hard with the tannins. But it's all there.
