Written Notes

The new owners spent a lot of money to upgrade their winemaking, building all new wine cellars and hired Stephane Derenoncourt for advice. Their investment continues to pay off. Smoky red berries, lush silky texture, medium body and minerality are found in this wine. 90-92 Pts

  • 92p
Rich red berries and quite sweet, slightly toasty. Nice intensity and freshness in the wine. Medium length. 90-92
  • 91p
Medium deep colour. Dark chocolate dark plum aromas. A touch extracted with soupy textures but sweet fruit flavours and plenty of vanilla oak. Elemental with density and richness for the long term. 89 points

 Markus Del Monego / Best Sommelier in the World 1998, MW (Germany)  tasted  Château Villemaurie 2015  ( Château Villemaurie )

"Dark purple red with violet hue and almost black core. A complex wine with expressive aroma reminiscent of blackcurrants and blackberries, slightly pyrotechnical character in the background as well as vanilla and gingerbread spices. On the palate well structured with fine fruit, mature tannins and excellent length. "
