Virginie de Valandraud was created in 1992. Virginie is the first name of Jean-Luc and Murielle’s daughter.

Since the extension of the vineyard from the vintage 1997, Virginie de Valandraud has its own identity. The vines come from the same plots and the wine making is treated with the same care as Château Valandraud.

Because of the constant excellency of the wine’s quality, Virginie de Valandraud is often considered to be the second wine of Chateau Valandraud, the first Grand Cru Classé of Saint-Emilion.


Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Virginie de Valandraud offers gorgeous black cherries, mulberries and black raspberry scents with hints of star anise, violets and cumin seed. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is firmly structured with firm, velvety tannins and tons of freshness, lifting the perfumed black fruits to a long finish.
