96-97 JS / 95-97 JD / 95 DE /92-94 VM

A serious and very linear white with fine phenolics that run the length of the wine. Medium to full body. Complex fruit character of melon, grapefruit and peaches. Excellent finish. Dry and energetic. 40% sauvignon gris, 40% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon. - James Suckling

The flagship white from Jean-Luc needs to be tasted to be believed, and I continue to think this is one of the top whites in Bordeaux. A blend of 45% Sauvignon Gris, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, and the rest Sémillon, it has a killer bouquet of honeyed lime, flowers, salty minerality, and exotic citrus fruits. These carry to a medium to full-bodied white with integrated yet vibrant acidity, beautiful balance, and a great finish. It will evolve for two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

Rich and ripe, a lovely intensity of lemon, green apple, pear, apricot and peach on the palate. Succulent, lively, round, juicy and weighty, lovely control and intensity of flavour. Still compact, a little shy, but layered and complex with crisp aspects as well as spiced ones giving nuance and interest. Good persistence and feeling of refinement. The sharp acidity really balances the richness of the vintage with power, opulence but control and character. A force in the glass, but very appealing. Harvest 1-13 September, ageing on the lees, 80% new barrels, 20% in amphora, less than 10 months. 3.15pH. 6,000 bottles. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2022 Valandraud Blanc was picked 1-13 September and matured in 80% new oak. It has a vivacious nose with gooseberry, citrus fruit, Vervane and light crushed rock scents. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh with a smooth, waxy-textured finish. Lovely build to this white Valandraud with a touch of wild peach popping up on the aftertaste. Very fine. - Neal Martin, Vinous Media
