Début Août, Neal Martin a publié sur le site de Robert Parker, ses notes et commentaires pour les 2004 et voici son appréciation de notre Valandraud 2004 :
2004 Château Valandraud 92
Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2004 horizontal tasting. The Château Valandraud 2004 has a well-defined and comparatively complex bouquet with brisk blackberry, dark plum and sandalwood aromas that open nicely in the glass. The oak is nicely integrated here and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with a saline entry. There is good depth and energy here, building nicely to a composed, truffle and smoke-tinged finish that has a sense of classicism beginning to come through with age. Excellent Mon. Thunevin! Tasted March 2014. NM
Merci Neal !
