Description Virginie de Valandraud 2023

The manual harvest for Virginie de Valandraud 2023 took place from September 13 to October 4 across a 15-hectare plot, following hot weather that accelerated ripening.

After a winter with typical rainfall and temperatures, the weather shifted to warm and humid conditions, with regular but moderate rainfall in May and June. This climate fostered vegetative growth but also led to significant mildew pressure until mid-July. Thanks to meticulous and timely interventions in the vineyard, the vines remained healthy and productive.

Virginie de Valandraud stands out as a distinctive wine, with its diverse parcels contributing to the complexity of this cru. This year, the blend incorporates young, vigorous, and uniformly mature vines, resulting in a wine that is increasingly balanced and gourmand.
