Tasting Notes

"The 2015 Virginie de Valandraud Blanc is a blend of 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Gris. It has a welcoming bouquet of citrus fruit, peach skin and green apples that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well balanced with bitter lemon and a touch of papaya on the entry, moderate depth and then a tempting peachy finish that will leave you with a smile on your face." - Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (4/27/2016, Issue 224), Ratings: 89-91, Drink: 2018-2023

 

Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus.  EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing.  A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.

For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs.  Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time.  Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.

If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice.  You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
