92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2017 Virginie de Valandraud Blanc has gained a good bit of body and texture during its aging - qualities that play off the bright fruit nicely. Lemon confit, almonds, dried flowers and chamomile run through this super-expressive, large-scaled wine. The 50% Sémillon really comes through in the wine's breadth. The 2017 has the depth and intensity to pair with just about anything at the dinner table. This is one of the better white of the vintage. Drink: 2020-2025. (Mar 2020)"

92 points James Suckling: "This is really delicious with sliced lemons and pears and hints of stone and cement. Full-bodied, fresh and vivid with a medium-creamy texture and purity and focus. Second wine of Château Valandraud white. Drink or hold. (1/10/20)"

91 points Wine Spectator: "Warm ganache, crushed plum and cherry compote flavors form a fleshy, forward mix, backed by an encore of ganache on the finish. A crowd-pleaser, with enough fresh acidity to stay honest. Drink now through 2024. 417 cases made. (2018)"

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This fresh, fruity wine has balanced wood and fresh apple flavors. Acidity balances the ripe fruits, along with toastiness and a bright aftertaste. Drink from 2021 Alcohol 13%. (Mar 2020)"
