2005 Chateau Valandraud - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru - 3 Bottles (0.75L)

Description
2005 Chateau Valandraud - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru - 3 Bottles (0.75L)
Red wine - France - 97/100 points, Robert Parker

This may be the most prodigious wine Jean-Luc Thunevin and his partner Murielle Andraud have made to date. Inky purple to the rim at age ten, this wine’s explosive aromatics include espresso, chocolate, plum, blackberry and cassis. The oak is well-hidden behind an extravagant, full-bodied, multi-layered palate. Stunningly pure, super-intense and just beginning to move into middle adolescence, the “Bad Boy” of Bordeaux has produced a legend in 2005. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2035. Drink 2017-2035.
Score: 97
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (219), June 2015

The wine is stored in a cellar in the best conditions.

Valandraud does not want to participate in the classification system of St. Emilion but if they would, they will be rewarded with Premium Grand Cru Classé status easily. 'Garagist' winery/producer
