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

 Markus Del Monego MW / 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. "
