2015 Villemaurine, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1261106 95 points James Suckling

 Crushed violet and blueberry aromas with a chalky edge. Smells restrained. The palate has a wealth of fresh flavors. So supple and even. Great depth and detail here. Try from 2022.  (2/2018)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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)  (4/2016)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck

 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.  (11/2017)

89-92 points Vinous

 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.

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
