Wine Advocate

91-93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep purple-black in color, the 2018 Virginie de Valandraud opens a little broody with notes of damp soil, truffles and chargrill, opening up to display stewed plums, blackberry tart and plum preserves plus nuances of espresso, Marmite toast, tapenade and wild sage. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a rock-solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness lifting the rich, decadent fruit to a long finish." 4/19

Neil Martin

92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Virginie de Valandraud has a beautiful bouquet of very pure blackberry, raspberry and rose petal scents, very nuanced in style with neatly integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, revealing touches of spicebox and dark chocolate on the entry before segueing into quite a structured middle and finish. Very focused and poised. This is a lovely, Virginie de Valandraud." 03/21

Vinous Media

92-95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Virginie de Valandraud emerges from a collection of unclassed parcels around Valandraud and on the plains below the core holdings. Powerful, dense and explosive, with an almost shocking level of richness, the Virginie is positively stellar in 2018. Blackberry jam, chocolate, licorice, new spice and leather all saturate the palate in a Saint-Émilion endowed with tremendous textural richness and resonance. The Virginie is superb in 2018. It should be a terrific relative value as well." 4/19
