Tasting Notes

"Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Virginie de Valandraud offers up red cherries and mulberries on the nose with florals and earth hints plus a touch of cinnamon. The medium to full-bodied palate is velvety and seductive with lovely expression and depth, finishing perfumed." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2/21/2018, Interim Issue), Ratings: 91+, Drink: 2018-2031

"The 2015 Virginie de Valandraud is matured in 100% new oak, according to Jean-Luc Thunevin. It has an intense, quite powerful bouquet with red cherries intermingling with blueberry and candied orange peel. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a "juicy" Virginie with plenty of puppy fat, but the oak feels nicely integrated and does not obscure its personality on the silky, sensual finish. Perhaps on reflection, I would have liked, say 80% new oak instead of 100%, but why let figures get in the way of this Saint Émilion that should be enjoyed over the next decade." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2016, Issue 224), Ratings: 90-92, Drink: 2019-2026
