The wine's exotic bouquet is just beginning to form, offering up notes of iodine, roasted coffee, jammy black fruits, and pain grille. In the mouth, it is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, terrific texture...
Lively aromas of black raspberry, black plum and smoky, spicy oak. Supple and very intensely flavored...has plenty of firming acidity. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and persistent spicy flavor.
"Valandraud is unquestionably Bordeaux's finest success story to date...(it has) become the micro-treasure sought by...wine collectors throughout the world." - Robert M. Parker, Jr
