Description

Characteristics and tasting tips for Virginie de Valandraud 2023

Tasting

Resulting from a blend completed by vigorous young vines, this 2023 vintage combines balance and indulgence.

The precision and creaminess of a Second Wine from Saint-Émilion

The property

First Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Émilion, the Château Valandraud shines among the most beautiful properties of the appellation. Demonstrating a remarkable quality-price ratio, the Virginie de Valandraud cuvée is made from a selection of the estate's younger vines.

The vineyard

The Virginie de Valandraud is a wine from Saint-Émilion made from vines planted on clay-limestone and siliceous-gravelly soils. The vines are on average 20 years old. The harvested area for the production of this wine is 15 hectares.

The wine

The Virginie de Valandraud is the Second Wine of the property.

The vintage

A relatively mild winter precedes a warm spring with low but regular rainfall. While these conditions favour rapid vegetative development, they also lead to a rare intensity of mildew pressure until mid-July, controlled by the efforts and rigour of the teams. The high temperatures in September ensure optimal maturity of the grapes before the harvest, carried out under favourable conditions from 13 September to 4 October.

Vinification and ageing

Hand harvesting. Ageing for 18 months in 100% new barrels.

Blend

Merlot (90%)
Cabernet Franc (5%)
