Chateau de Valandraud Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$309

...a spectacular wine, and having tasted it three times from bottle, I am in love with it. Dense purple-colored, with a glorious nose of espresso, cocoa, chocolate, plum, black currant, and cherry, offering a true smorgasbord of heavenly delights, this medium to full-bodied wine still shows some relatively firm tannin, but the low acidity, layered, multi-textured mouthfeel, and tremendous purity are hallmarks of the Thunevin winemaking style... Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019. Robert Parker

PnP and followed over a couple of hours. Mostly Merlot with some cab franc. Red fruits, cherries and overall on the sweeter side. Interesting wine.
