Lu dans la belle revue The World of Fine Wine, une dégustation des 2006, signée Michael Schuster, Michel Bettane et Thierry Desseauve et de très beaux commentaires (en Anglais)  sur Valandraud et Virginie de Valandraud 2006 :


Château Valandraud 2006   -  17.5

MB : Great color ; intense and noble violet-like nose ; perfect ripeness, great length ; perhaps more Pomerol in character than St-Emilion ! Refined winemaking, seductive and complex –lovely. 17.5

TD : The same soft and mellow body as Virginie, but much longer and intense. Great hedonistic style, with a perfect balance and a long depth. 18

MS : Sweet, restrained nose; generous middleweight wine, fresh and tannic, a fine, long –term constitution; rich, ample, powerful, tannic; masses of  flavor within the firm tannin texture; long in ripe fruit, powerful in flavor, complex and complete, with excellent length. An aromatic  and a powerful expression of St-Emilion, needing at least 8-10 years. 2018-35. 17.5


Virginie de Valandraud – 15.5

MB : Great color, rich and intense body, tannin on the dry and heavy side but not overwhelming; excellent intensity but lacking the refinement of texture of the best. 16

TD : soft and mellow; charming but not enough intensity. 15

MS : Soft, sweet, vital, mature fruit on the nose; very nicely balanced, firmly dry, medium-full wine; fine, ripe, scented, minerally fruit of moderate complexity, a little wood dry. Needs time. 2014-20. 15.5
