Story

Always looking for new challenges, Jean Luc Thunevin and Murielle Andraud decided a few years back to keep a plot from the Valandraud vineyard to start the production of a white wine: Blanc de Valandraud N°1 and 2 were born. Murielle is fully in charge of this project, with the help of oenologist Thanos Fakorellis. Since its creation in 2003, the production is divided in one first wine and a second wine which names changed in 2010 to became Château Valandraud Blanc and Virginie de Valandraud Blanc.

Accolades

“The 2014 Virginie de Valandraud Blanc is laced with citrus peel, crushed rocks and white flowers, all in an energetic, crystalline style best suited to drinking over the next few years. Tasted two times.” – Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com
