Tasting Notes

Vinous – 100

The 2005 Valandraud is off the charts. Easily one of the wines of the vintage, the 2005 Valandraud possesses tremendous richness from start to finish. Moreover, it has aged exquisitely. Inky red fruit, iron, smoke, dried herbs, menthol, licorice and blood orange infuse the 2005 with striking layers of nuance to play off all that unctuous fruit. This full-throttle Saint-Émilion is a prodigious effort from Jean-Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud. [Antonio Galloni, 15/04/2021]

Anticipated maturity: 2021-2035

Robert Parker – 95

Tasted blind at the Valandraud vertical at the property, the 2005 Valandraud is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc aged in new oak for 22 months. It has a very precise bouquet with fine delineation: copious blackberry, raspberry and crisp strawberry fruit, impressive mineralité with subtle marine scents lapping against the shore. The palate is very composed on the entry. It has an almost Burgundy-like texture. This is very refined and cohesive, silky smooth with a powerful and intense bravura of a finish. Perhaps the most sophisticated wine that Jean-Luc Thunévin had made at that point, it comes highly recommended and is just beginning to drink now. Tasted December 2016. [Neal Martin, 28/09/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2017-2040

Tasted blind. Still some purple in the crimson. Sweet and creamy on the nose. Lots of pzazz on the palate. Still a lot of tannin on the end. But some evolved fruit too. [23/02/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2016-2036
