Tasting Notes

"Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Virginie de Valandraud opens a little broody with notes of damp soil, truffles and chargrill, opening up to display stewed plums, blackberry tart and plum preserves plus nuances of espresso, Marmite toast, tapenade and wild sage. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness lifting the rich, decadent fruit to a long finish." - Lisa Perotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/23/2019, Bordeaux 2018 Issue), Ratings: 91-93

Notes on sale of Futures, Pre-Arrivals, and potential US Tariffs: 

1.  Prices for Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrivals are shown before US tariffs.  Any applicable tariffs not paid at the time of order will be collected prior to delivery.

2.  Futures are expected to be available for delivery 2 years following the sales (e.g. the 2019 vintage, sold in 2020, will be delivered in 2022).

3.  Pre-Arrivals are items currently stored in our Bordeaux cellar, or in transit from France to the US.  It usually takes 1-6 months for Pre-Arrivals to become available for delivery, depending on the stage of the import process.

4.  As far as futures and pre-arrivals are concerned, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates which may be impacted by factors beyond our control.  We will notify you once your wines have arrived in our cellar.
