Virginie de Valandraud 2015 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Virginie de Valandraud 2015 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, fine and offers a small intensity and a small freshness. It reveals notes of blackberry jam, cassis and small touches of licorice associated with a discreet hint of chocolate. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit aerial and offers tension, precision, a nice freshness, a good definition as well as a nice silky and quite fleshy matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes blackberry jam and touches of plum associated with a touch of blueberry, chocolate as well as a discreet touch of red fruit (in the background), minerality / graphite, oak and dark chocolate on the finish / persistence. Tannins are fine and well built. Good length.
