Virginie de Valandraud 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Virginie de Valandraud 2017 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, racy and offers power, concentration, a fine richness and a fine grain. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, blueberry and small notes of small wild black fruits associated with touches of gray pepper, violet, liquorice, sweet spices and very discreet hints of Bourbon vanilla. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy/acidulous frame, precision, a fine tension as well as fat. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of raspberry associated with a touch of crushed cherry, violet, liquorice/cola as well as very discreet hints of roasted almond and vanilla pod. Tannins are elegant and structuring. A very discreet chew on the persistence. A beautiful wine!
