Valandraud began as a vin de garage in the early 1990’s in St-Emilion making small quantities of rich and intense Merlot heavy Clarets. With expansion came the addition of dry white wines made from varying blends of Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Gris. The amount used of each depends on the vintage which makes this an ever changing offering. A fair amount of new oak is used most years but the wines still manage to be fresh and lively on the palate.
2017 was a good vintage in Bordeaux
