This is really fantastic with density and richness and lots of minerality. Full-bodied, layered and extremely long. This has so much density and agility in the center palate.

A wine that seems to fly under the radar, Château Villemaurine nevertheless produces an impressive, classic Saint-Emilion from their estate on the upper plateau. The 2018 Château Villemaurine checks in as 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc that was brought up in 75% new French oak. It has a spicy, exotic, already complex bouquet of red and black fruits, sandalwood, dried flowers, and touch of incense. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, elegant Saint-Emilion with a terrific floral character, ripe yet present tannins, solid overall balance, and a great finish. It's as good, if not better than both the 2015 and 2016.

This estate, situated just on the edge of the city of Saint-Emilion, has produced a big, juicy wine. Soft tannins and superripe black fruits suggest it will develop well over the medium term. This is a rich wine, ready to drink from 2024.

The 2018 Villemaurine is laced with sweet red cherry, mint, cinnamon, blood orange and spice. Bright floral top notes add lift and energy. When the 2018 was in barrel, it felt a bit compact. My feeling remains the same today. There is good energy and persistence, but the 2018 comes across as a bit compact and nervous.

Ripe and solid, with dark plum and blackberry compote notes framed by a hint of roasted apple wood. The grippy, slightly tarry edge to the finish is a touch extracted in feel, but the fruit pushes through. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2024. 2,700 cases made, 500 cases imported.
