Description/ Tasting Notes

Pure bouquet, precise and elegant with precocious dark cherry and crème de cassis scents merged with violet petals. The oak  is nicely in sync, and the palate is medium-bodied with ripe, chalky tannin over-layered with surprisingly minerally dark berry fruit that dovetails into a long spicy finish.

Winery Info/ Brand



Virginie de Valandraud, the second wine of Chateau Valandraud, is the achievement of wine obsessed couple, Jean Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud. Chateau Valandraud was born in 1991 on a 0.6 ha vineyard bought with the couple's savings. The small vineyard is situated in the Fongaban Valley, in the PAvie Macquin / La Clotte neighbourhood and this is where Valandraud, got its name from. Val (Valley) + Andraud (Murielle's family name, which appears on the Saint-Emilion's registry since 1459).

Region Info/ Origin



Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
