This bottle was opened last week for Andrew Jefford on Tuesday, closed with a Pulltex cap and finished on Thursday. It was quite simply very, very good, perfectly drinkable as would wish any modern wine consumer tired of powerful, 'body-builded' wines!
I like powerful wines. I liked them in the past and will always like them in the future but still I am able to appreciate different wines, like the ones we produce in Lalande de Pomerol and Pomerol.
During the tasting on Tuesday, it was surprising to have a Valandraud 2010, our best wine yet; full bodied, fresh, a perfect balance between sweet and dry, (This wine should have been rated 100) and the almost salty flavours of Clos du Beau Père (even though it is not grown on chalky soil!)
