Virginie de Valandraud Saint Emilion Grand Cru 2017

First created in 1992 as the second wine of Château Valandraud, Virginie de Valandraud is named after Jean–Luc ThunevIn and Murielle Andraud’s daughter. Since 1997, and the ever increasing Thunevin vineyards in the Saint Emilion area, Virginie de Valandraud Saint Emilion Grand Cru has developed its own identity while being grown and vinified the same way and by the same team in charge of Chateau Valandraud. Although Virginie de Valandraud may be seen as a second wine it is cultivated and vinified the same way as Château Valandraud, by the same team, with the same means and methods, under the supervision of Murielle Andraud and as such it has stepped out of its “big brother’s” shadow to rightfully become an independent cuvée of startling good quality. A blend of Merlot (65%), Cabernet Franc (25 %), Cabernet Sauvignon (5 %), Malbec (4 %) and Carmenère (1%) the wine is matured in new French oak for up to 24 months.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
