This is chewy and structured with lots of chalk, blueberry, and currant character. Full body, velvety and intense. Huge wine here. Can’t wait to watch it develop.
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. (NM)
Sporting a dense ruby/purple color as well as terrific purity in its cassis, currants, leafy herbs, spring flowers and spicy oak aromas and flavors, the 2015 Château Villemaurine is fresh and lively on the palate, with again, terrific purity, and a straight, tight, focused feel that needs 4-5 years of cellaring. A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from an 11-hectare vineyard located just above La Clotte and Le Prieuré, this serious, age-worthy 2015 is well worth seeking out.
The 2015 Villemaurine is dark, fleshy and radiant. Dark red cherry, plum, smoke, tobacco, licorice, herbs, menthol and exotic spices flesh out in a succulent, powerful Saint-Émilion. Silky tannins add to an impression of textural richness. Forward and juicy, the 2015 is showing beautifully today. The 2015 is super polished and impeccably balanced. Tasted three times. (AG)
