"Tasted blind at the Valandraud vertical at the property, the 1993 Valandraud was one of the real surprises among the oldest bottles that were poured. It has a dark, clear color sporting only a thin degraded rim. The nose is punchy and ripe with ample meaty black fruit, camphor, dark chocolate and espresso notes. You almost feel there was some American oak (there wasn't incidentally). The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, not a heavy wine but certainly well balanced with a fine thread of acidity. It exerts a gentle grip in the mouth, becoming ever spicier as it gently fans out and leaves a generous dash of cracked black peppercorns on the foursquare finish. I doubt there are as many Bordeaux that are now this pleasurable after 23 years. Tasted December 2016." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Feb 28, 2017)
