Chateau VALANDRAUD Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2000

Wine Region: Bordeaux - France

Grape: Merlot, Cabernet Franc

Tasting notes: The wine has pronounced aromas of blackcurrants and young cherries, later developing mocha aromas. The predominance of the Merlot grape lends it its suave, seductive character in the mouth.

About the winery:
Chateau Valandraud is the main achievement of a wine obsessed couple, Jean Luc Thuvenin and Murielle Andraud. Chateau Valandraud was born in 1991 on a 0,6 ha vineyard bought with all the couple's savings.
This small vineyard is situated in the Fongaban Valley, in the pavie macquin/la clotte neighbouthood and this is where "Valendraud" comes from : val (valley) + andraud (Murielle's family name, which appears on the Saint Emilion's registery since 1459)
