Valandraud 2000 (750ml)
 

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Tasted at the Valandraud vertical at the property, the 2000 Valandraud has a very dark color with just a thin crimson rim. The bouquet is exquisite: intense black cherry and blackcurrant scents, sandalwood, cedar and spices, complex and involving, the aromatics appear to just grow and grow. The palate is medium-bodied with supple red and black fruit, fine tannins and perfect acidity. It feels backward but very tensile with a flow of energy towards the precise and deeply impressive finish. This is an outstanding millennial Saint Emilion from Jean-Luc Thunévin. Drink through 2035. (NM) (2/2017)

2000 年的 Valandraud 葡萄酒在該物業的 Valandraud 垂直品嚐,顏色非常深,只有薄薄的深紅色邊緣。酒香精緻:濃郁的黑櫻桃和黑醋栗香味,檀香木,雪松和香料,複雜而復雜,芳香似乎在不斷增長。口感中等,帶有柔順的紅色和黑色水果、細膩的單寧和完美的酸度。感覺向後但非常拉力,能量流向精確而令人印象深刻的完成。這是來自讓-呂克·圖內萬 (Jean-Luc Thunévin) 的傑出千年聖埃美隆 (Saint Emilion)。喝到 2035 年。


93 points James Suckling

This has a fascinating coffee and chocolate character with a hazelnut edge. Full and velvety but turns a little austere. Bright acidity. (5/2011)

它具有迷人的咖啡和巧克力風味,帶有榛子邊緣。飽滿而柔軟,但變得有點嚴肅。明亮的酸度。

CHÂTEAU VALANDRAUD IS THE MAIN ACHIEVEMENT OF A WINE OBSESSED COUPLE, JEAN LUC THUNEVIN AND MURIELLE ANDRAUD. CHÂTEAU VALANDRAUD WAS BORN IN 1991 ON A 0.6 HA VINEYARD BOUGHT WITH ALL THE COUPLE’S SAVINGS.

THIS SMALL VIENYARD IS SITUATED IN THE FONGABAN VALLEY, IN THE PAVIE MACQUIN /LA CLOTTE NEIGHBOURHOOD AND THIS IS WHERE « VALANDRAUD » COMES FROM : VAL ( VALLEY) + ANDRAUD ( MURIELLE’S FAMILY NAME, WHICH APPEARS ON THE SAINT EMILION’S REGISTERY SINCE 1459).

The 8.88 ha estate is now fully based on the clayey-limestone hills and slopes of Saint Etienne de Lisse, with an eclectic array of grape varieties : Merlot 65 %, Cabernet Franc 25%, Cabernet Sauvignon 5%, Malbec 4%, Carmenère 1%.

The harvest is done manually, the grapes being first sorted by the harvest crew directly in the vineyard, they then go through another sorting : a densimetric one through Tribaie® upon their arrival in our cellar.

Stainless steel, wooden and concrete tanks are where the vinification process starts, with pigeage by hand, remontages, during a 3 weeks maceration.

Malolactic fermentation is done in barrels.

Ageing : 18 to 30 months in 100% new oak Blending varies with every vintage, as the result of the careful selection work done by our technical team in order to choose our best lots.

CHÂTEAU VALANDRAUD 是對葡萄酒痴迷的夫婦 Jean LUC THUNEVIN 和 MURIELLE ANDRAUD 的主要成就。 CHÂTEAU VALANDRAUD 於 1991 年出生在一個 0.6 公頃的葡萄園裡,他們用了夫妻倆的所有積蓄。

這座小 VIENYARD 位於 FONGABAN 山谷,在 PAVIE MACQUIN /LA CLOTTE 社區,這就是“VALANDRAUD”的來源:VAL (VALLEY) + ANDRAUD(Murielle 的姓氏,在 59 年 5 月 19 日在 SEMI 上出現)。

佔地 8.88 公頃的莊園現在完全基於 Saint Etienne de Lisse 的粘土石灰岩山丘和斜坡,擁有多種葡萄品種:梅洛 65%、品麗珠 25%、赤霞珠 5%、馬爾貝克 4%、佳美娜 1 %。

採摘是手工完成的,葡萄首先由採摘人員直接在葡萄園中進行分類,然後再進行另一次分類:在到達我們的酒窖時通過 Tribaie® 進行密度測定。

不銹鋼、木製和混凝土罐是釀造過程開始的地方,在 3 週的浸漬過程中,手工採摘、重新蒙太奇。

蘋果乳酸發酵在桶中進行。

陳釀:18 至 30 個月在 100% 新橡木桶中混釀因年份而異,這是我們技術團隊精心挑選的結果,以選擇我們最好的批次。
