Les Angelots De Villemaurine 2010 St. Emilion Grand Cru
Villemaurine is a jewel of a château, with seventeen precious acres of vines right in the heart of Saint Emilion's limestone plateau. Being so close to the epicentre of Saint Emilion, it is no surprise Villemaurine and its Grand Vin attract so much attention. But for a fraction of the price here is Angelots de Villemaurine, the property's absolutely superb second label. 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, still St. Emillion Grand Cru and made with the same expertise of consulting winemaker and Bordeaux icon Stéphane Derenoncourt. This 2010 has reached a marvelous stage of maturity where the tannins are velvet and the flavors are rich and compelling. Very Linited!
