The name "3 de Valandraud" implies this is the third wine of Valandraud when it's actually the second wine of Thunevin's famous Valandraud, Virginie, and Clos Badon wines. It is from an inside joke (and no explanation has been given) of Jean-Luc Thunevin. The wine is very representative of Thunevin's signature style - lush and opulent-forward fruit with a silky, smooth tannic structure. Ripe dark berries, licorice, supple textures, sweet black raspberries, and an anise-filled finish.

65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec. In 1989, Jean-Luc Thunevin and his wife, Murielle Andraud, acquired a small parcel of 1.4 acres in the valley of Saint-Emilion, between Pavie-Macquin and La Clotte. And in 1991 the adventure of Valandraud began. Since then they acquired more properties in famous locations such as Saint-Sulpice de Faleyrens and Saint-Etienne de Lisse.
