Tasting Notes

"The wine is tannic, rich and full-bodied, with impressive purity, loads of black raspberry, black currant, graphite and smoky barbecue notes intermixed with some toasty oak and forest floor. Rich and impressive, but needing cellar time, this wine begs for 4-5 years of bottle age and should drink well for 25-30 years. The resurrection of this Château is apparent with the 2010 Villemaurine. Up to this point, this was always one of the most disappointing wines in St.-Emilion, but new ownership, new cellars and a new commitment to quality have given this property a new lease on life. It is beautifully situated high on the limestone plateau just outside the walls of St.-Emilion and is a very small property of only 17.5 acres. In 2010, yields were cut to 29 hectoliters per hectare and the final blend was 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.5% natural alcohol." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (2/27/2013, Issue 205), Ratings: 91, Drink: 2017-2047
