The notes of the best wines have just been published yesterday and Valandraud is among the top with 18-19 and the following comment: “Bright, creamy, with beautiful length and breadth, the gorgeous fruit extends its depth. One of the top wines vintage, with one of the finest tannins.”

In the Quebec newspaper, Le Journal du Devoir, in Jean Aubry wrote in his Wine of the week section called “L’émotion” a beautiful comment on Constance Thunevin Calvet 2008. Thank you to our Canadian cousins who love our wines!
Cuvée Constance again in the spotlight, winning a silver medal in the nice price category.
