Winemaker Notes

Pure magic and as good as it gets, the 2010 Château Valandraud reveals a still vivid ruby/purple hue to go with an incredible bouquet of sweet black cherry and currant fruits as well as baking spices, white truffle, violets, and tobacco. Deep, rich, and full-bodied on the palate, it nevertheless stays perfectly balanced, has ultra-fine, still present tannins, incredible purity, and a gorgeous finish. This is one of those wines where one bottle will never be enough. I think it’s spectacular today, yet it will no doubt evolve for another 20-30 years in cold cellars. A blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels, hats off to Jean-Luc Thunevin for this truly legendary Saint-Emilion! Best After 2022
