Other Reviews....
The 2023 Virginie de Valandraud is bright, punchy and full of character. Crushed flowers, mint and spice weave through a core of layered red fruit. Floral overtones reappear to extend the beautifully persistent finish. There's terrific freshness here. Superb. Drink 2026-2038.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

This shows depth and power, yet it comes across as elegant and refined, too. Medium- to full-bodied with an impressive structure that lasts long on the palate. The tannins are super-fine and pixelated. 90% merlot, 5% cabernet franc and 5% cabernet sauvignon.

James Suckling

A blend of 90% Merlot and 5% each Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2023 Château Valandraud Virginie De Valandraud has a rocking mix- of red, blue, and black fruits as well as graphite, crushed stone, and savory flowers. This medium to full-bodied, round, supple Saint-Emilion has a beautiful sense of elegance, fine tannins, and a great finish.

Enjoyably textured and brambled berry fruit character. Bright and vivid, fresh fig and orange peel bring focus, anis bitterness on the finish. Jean-Luc Thunevin owner, harvest September 13 to October 4, 3.7ph, 100% new oak for ageing. Made from 15ha of vines, as 2ha previously used have now been moved into Valandraud as the vines have aged.
