Grapefruit, spice, apricot and lemon combine perfectly. The fruits are ripe and sweet, but it is the juicy freshness giving the wine lift that creates its character.

2016 Virginie de Valandraud  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 93

The wine shows richness, ripe black cherries, licorice and espresso. There is a depth of flavor and lushness to the texture that makes this a turn on. There is freshness and sweet, ripe dark, red fruits that leave a nice impression on the palate and in the finish.

Freshness is right out in front, racing the ample fruit for attention on the nose and on the palate. The wine easily sells its smoky, tobacco, licorice, dark red berry and cocoa aura. Soft tannins, sweet black plum, blackberry and a fruit-a-lious finish are the name of the game.
