Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Valandraud 1er Grand Cru Classe B 2009


Lobenberg: Schwarz und undurchsichtig. Ungeheuer druckvolle Brombeer- und Schokonase mit viel Holz, Vanille und Rauch. Satter Fruchtmund, die Frucht nimmt allen Platz ein, viel Brombeere und viel Holz, insgesamt aber schön frisch und gradlinig, sehr gut und sehr gelungen. 95+/100


Parker über: Chateau Valandraud 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Parker: Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Valandraud is truly strutting its stuff right now with a bold, flamboyant nose of Black Forest cake, molten licorice, blackberry preserves and baked plums plus touches of kirsch, candied violets, star anise, unsmoked cigars, incense and a compelling waft of smoked meats. Full-bodied, the palate is a pedal-to-the-metal, fruit-n-spice blockbuster with a full-on sexy texture of beautifully plush, rounded tannins and tons of freshness to lift the very long, very perfumed finish.97/100


Galloni über: Chateau Valandraud 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Galloni: The 2009 Valandraud has a ripe and opulent bouquet with precocious red fruit, fig and rose petals, a little warmth of alcohol blurring the edges and becoming more tarry with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent plush, saturated tannin. This is sleek and modern in style, heady and concentrated with a decadent finish. It conveys a sense of purity. The bottle tasted in 2017 showed a tad more precision on the finish. 94/100


Wine Spectator über: Chateau Valandraud 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Wine Spectator: Racy and beautifully defined, with a sleek graphite frame to the mouthwatering loganberry, blackberry and linzer torte flavors. Shows lots of toasted spice on the finish, but is well-integrated, with a gorgeous mouthfeel. This has ample fruit, but remains very suave. Best from 2013 through 2025. 1,080 cases made. 94/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Chateau Valandraud 1er Grand Cru Classe B

-- Wine Enthusiast: Big, floral, ripe and juicy, this epitomizes the richness of the 2009 vintage. It offers firm tannins and generous, forward fruits. 94/100

Chateau Valandraud

Ganz am Rande der Appellation gelegene Weinberge und der Nachbar von Château Tertre de la Mouleyre. Chateau Valandraud wird auch das Chateau Le Pin Saint Emilions genannt, weil er ähnlich rar, konzentriert und teuer ist. Jean-Luc Thunevin ist der charismatische Besitzer und in Personalunion sowohl...
