Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2018 Virginie de Valandraud Blanc slips out of the glass with softly spoken notes of lemongrass, lime cordial and chalk dust giving way to a core of fresh pineapple and green mango with a waft of honeysuckle. Medium-bodied, the palate gives bags of citrus and tropical fruit and a racy line lifting the long finish.
