PRODUCER: Chateau Valandraud is the main achievement of a wine obsessed couple, Jean Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud. Chateau Valandraud was born in 1991on a 0.6 HA Vineyard bought with all the couple's savings.
VINEYARD: The 8.88 ha estate is now fully based on the clayey-limestone hills and slopes of Saint Etienne de Lisse, with an eclectic array of grape varieties : Merlot 65 %, Cabernet Franc 25%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%, Malbec 4%, Carmenère 1%.
TASTING NOTES: Bright ruby red colour with almost opulent density and the nose is filled with impeccable oak, vanilla & luscious bouquet of very well rippen plum. It is a very full bodied wine with high acidity & very powerful tannins. It is a fruit forward wine and the palate is brimming with dark fruit characteristics especially black cherry, black currant, plum, dried prunes & fig.
