Bulletin de notes très sympathique pour Valandraud 2014, avec 95/100 pour Antonio Galloni :
"The 2014 Valandraud is laced with dark cherry compote, spice, new leather and chocolate notes. In 2014, Valandraud is marked by a super-appealing combination of intense dark fruit and fresher, more floral-driven nuances that beautifully express the freshness of the year. The 2014 is a wonderfully complete Valandraud to drink over the next 10-15 years, perhaps longer."
95/100 aussi pour James Molesworth :
"Delivers a gorgeous display of fruit, with boysenberry, raspberry and blackberry coulis notes that are fresh and racy, allied to a graphite spine and framed judiciously with a well-singed apple wood accent. This has a lot of coiled-up energy. Best from 2022 through 2035. 2,000 cases made. "
Sans oublier Valandraud blanc qui obtient un beau 94/100 du Wine Spectator : "Gorgeous, with warm shortbread, Meyer lemon meringue, macadamia nut, mirabelle plum and mineral notes all woven seamlessly together. The rich but stony finish makes this thoroughly beguiling. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Sauvignon Gris. Drink now through 2020. 235 cases made." JM
