2015 Chateau Valandraud Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 1st Tranche

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

This former garagiste project from Jean-Luc Thunevin was promoted to Grand Cru Classe B in 2012. The Wine Advocate gushes over its "glorious and damn irresistible bouquet of crème de cassis, blueberry, crushed violets and a scintilla of citrus fruit, all beautifully defined and very precise. The acidity is well judged with layers of caressing black fruit towards a finish for which I could only deploy the word - nubile. This will be a stunning Valandraud to savor over the next couple of decades, though it will be difficult to resist temptation in its youth."
