This Saint-Emilion displays an intense red colour which leads to a lovely, vibrant fruit as well as a dense and harmonious tannic structure, worthy of an outstanding vintage. The 2015 Chateau Villemaurine perfectly expresses the specificity of its calcareous-clay terroir.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Villemaurine is a Saint Emilion Cru that has had a turnaround in recent years. Hubert de Boüard has recently replaced Stephane Derenoncourt's consulting team. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, it has a precise and focused bouquet with ebullient red cherries and raspberry coulis mixed with subtle limestone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, precise and harmonious, quite tensile and perhaps only needing a little more flesh to counter a slightly pinched finish. Give this excellent wine 3-5 years in bottle.
