Chateau de Valandraud Saint-Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2005

$179

...impeccable attention to detail, resulting in an inky/blue/purple-colored 2005 Valandraud boasting a sweet nose of melted chocolate, licorice, graphite, espresso roast, and copious quantities of black cherries and blackberries. Pure, layered, and full-bodied, with gorgeous integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood, this stunning effort will be drinkable in 7-8 years, and should keep for three decades...

Blackberry, blueberry, mint and black tea aromas and flavors. Intense mineral hints. Long and beautiful aftertaste.

Awesome St. Emilion! Dark ruby in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, mineral and dried lavender. Full-bodied, very dense and layered, with powerful tannins. This is big

Put a hurt on the 05 Montrose next to it. Much better than bottle a year or so ago. Great stuff.
