2015 Chateau Valandraud St Emilion

$169.95
JS98WA96+

Valandraud is extremely rare, with only about 1,000 cases produced. It’s remarkable that one of the top wines of the Right Bank remains so fairly priced. “Plenty of toasty oak and extract here. This has immensely concentrated fruits with powerful yet silky tannins. Blackberry and dark-plum aromas dominate the nose with hints of dark chocolate and candied orange. Flavors follow suit amid fluid, muscular tannins that hold long into the finish. Great wine.” – James Suckling The Wine Advocate swooned, “This big-boned, voluptuous, Rubenesque beauty will blow hedonists’ minds!”
