Description/ Tasting NotesDeep garnet-purple colour and lovely cedar, earth, baked cherries and warm plum notions followed by nuances of pencil shavings, cloves, cinnamon stick, star anise and dusty soil. Great finesse, precision, this medium to full-bodied wine slowly builds into loads of spicy layers with pleasantly chewy texture and a long mineral-laced finish.
Winery Info/ Brand
The vinification of Château Villemaurine is carefully adapted to the characteristics of each vintage. Justin Onclin’s wine-growing philosophy can be summed up as “profound respect for the estate’s terroir in combination with the search for excellence.” Complexity, pedigree and finesse in the wines are sought above all else. Typically long on the palate, mineral and elegant, the wines of Château Villemaurine epitomise every year the sublime character of the finest Saint-Emilions and are the expression of a truly stunning terroir.
Region Info/ Origin
Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
