Neal Martin vient de publier ses commentaires  de dégustation (à l’aveugle) des Saint Emilion 2003. Voici ce qu’il dit de Valandraud :

 

Château Valandraud 2003: the best wine of these four Saint Emilion flights so kudos to Mon. Thunevin  whose wine consistently shines in tough blind tastings such as these. Valandraud was the top-scoring Saint Emilion although note that Château Ausone was included in a separate flight consisting of the “Big Eight”.

 

2003 Château Valandraud    93
The first Saint Emilion that shows real, bona fide quality. A tempered nose of raspberry, redcurrants, damsons and a touch of fennel. A very elegant nose, plump and with great delineation. Very focused with good weight, this is a wine that has brushed aside the limitations of the 2003 growing season to produce a seamless, delectable wine in a “traditional” style (written blissfully ignorant of its identity!)
Wonderful. 
Drinking 2008-2018. Tasted January 2007.
