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.

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. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2020-2045

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. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Very dark. But not much nose. Sweet and sour. Quite exaggerated. Very drying end. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2032

More precision this year. Quality of fruit and tannins are really finely honed. Builds to a long, firm finish. Minerality of the terroir shows. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2032
