Producer's description

Jean-Luc Tyunevan - a recognized leader "garazhistov", born in Algeria - moved with his parents to France at the age of 10 years. In 1984, he opened a small grocery store, which soon became a wine bar, and then the liquor store. For the purchase of the vineyard Jean-Luc decided only in 1989. The name "Chateau Valandraud" which winemaker Jean-Luc Tyunven gave his initially very modest ownership (0.6 ha), was born from the mixing of the words "Val" (fr. "Valley") and his wife's maiden name of Jean-Luc Muriel - Androud. This winemaker secured it a significant contribution to their common cause. On the improvement of the production process, Jean-Luc experimented for years to come. Barrels in which the wine was aged for lack of other suitable places, put right in your garage. When in 1995, the brainchild of the estate Valandraud finally received the recognition it deserves Robert Parker, there was a boom in this "garage" wine. His new wife is not high status reaffirmed in subsequent years.
Critics, despite the recognition of the quality and originality of wine Chateau Valandraud, some annoyed by the fact that Jean-Luc Tyunevan easily violated Bordeaux winemaking tradition - his fault just do not fit standard to Bordeaux. Nevertheless, the commercial success of a family business that stands out attentiveness to detail speaks for itself.
