Valentina is produced from a rigorous selection of the finest Malbec vines.
This plot of vines, overgrafted in 2016, is located on the finest clay-sand terroirs of Château Petit Val in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation. It is vinified in amphorae, barrels and in ‘wineglobes’ (small glass vats), to preserve fruit character and give enhanced aromatic complexity.
Jean-Louis and Olivia Alloin have dedicated this 100% Malbec cuvée, which is both elegant and generous, and reveals a subtle mix of violets and spices, to Valentina, David Liorit’s daughter.
