The “fabulous” Chateau Valandraud 2015 is a small production, highly scored and sharply priced St Emilion.
The critics were clearly impressed. Neal Martin awarded 95-97 points, the Wine Spectator 94-97, and James Suckling a massive 98-99 points, placing the Valandraud above even fellow St Emilion Cheval Blanc according to his 2015 ratings.
A small garagiste operation with a cult following, output is low and this makes mature Valandraud always tough to find. This makes comparable quality vintages such as 2005, 2009 and 2010 rare and expensive compared to this new and very appealing 2015 release:
