Tasted blind at the Valandraud vertical at the property, the 2012 Valandraud instantly demonstrated the wide gap in quality between itself and the previous vintage. It is a blend of 88% Merlot and 12% Cabernet Franc matured for 28 months in 100% new oak. It has a primal and concentrated bouquet with intense blackberry, bilberry and graphite aromas that gain intensity in the glass, and yet remain "strict" and linear. The palate is medium-bodied with brittle tannin that impart a chalky texture. There is plenty of clean and crisp blackberry and raspberry fruit here, pencil lead and a touch of chalk towards the precise and vivid finish. The energy is palpable in this Saint Emilion, a quite stupendous wine from Jean-Luc and Murielle that must stand as one of the best on the Right Bank. This comes strongly recommended, although it still needs plenty of time.

Tasting note

2011年的瓦倫德酒莊展現了Jean-Luc Thunevin和Murielle Andraud對葡萄酒的熱情與堅持。這款聖艾美倫特級葡萄酒充滿了優雅與力量。香氣中帶有黑莓、淡淡的花香以及烤木頭的氣息,口感動人且絲滑。草莓、李子和黑莓的風味與覆盆子和巧克力的細微差別層次分明。細膩而堅定的單寧賦予了它良好的餘韻。在全新橡木桶中陳釀28個月,這款葡萄酒真實地表達了其尊貴產區的特色。

The 2011 Chateau Valandraud is a testament to the passion and dedication of Jean-Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud. This Saint-Emilion Grand Cru is a harmonious blend that exudes elegance and power. With a bouquet of blackberries, a hint of flowers, and toasted notes, it leads to a dynamic and silky palate. Flavors of strawberry, plum, and blackberry are layered with raspberry and chocolate nuances. The fine, firm tannins contribute to its good length and persistence. Aged for 28 months in new barrels, this wine is a true expression of its prestigious terroir.
