Virginie de Valandraud 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Virginie de Valandraud 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is aromatic and powerful. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and small notes of fresh raspberry associated with touches of spices, gray pepper and subtle hints of almond (in the background). The palate is fruity, juicy, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, suavity, tension, a beautiful guideline, dynamism, gourmandize, finesse as well as beautiful finesse of the grain. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy / crunchy strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with fine touches of toasted oak, licorice, blond tobacco, spices, chocolate and crushed almond on the finish. Tannins are fine, elegant and slightly chewy. Good length. Chew on the finish. The persistence is gourmande. Great success!
