Description

Situated at the centre of the small, historic town of Saint-Emilion, the estate has been family-run for the past four generations. The name of this tiny vineyard originates from the time of the Saracen invasions around 732, when the Moor armies set up an observation camp here - hence the name of Villemaurine, meaning the town of the Moors. Produced with passionate dedication by Jean-Franois Carrille, this wine expresses all the finesse and elegance of this exceptional terroir.

Tasting Notes: The 2008 vintage very much resembles the previous vintages, thus confirming the position of this wine, made by Jean-Francois Carille, among the elite of the appellation. Deeply coloured with dark purple tints. Well-developed, complex nose of blackcurrant and blackberry at first sniff, with toasty, smoky notes emanating from elegant oak. The impression on the palate is one of a delicate, creamily smooth wine with fine length and structure thanks to beautifully balanced tannins. A harmonious whole going to a mild, lingering finish with toasty, jammy notes.

Ageing: A wine which is worth cellaring for a few years drinking nicely from 2011 but with an ageing potential of several years more.
