Les Angelots de Villemaurine AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, 2015
Château Villemaurine is a historic estate located on the outskirts of the town of Saint-Émilion. The seven-hectare vineyard is a single block sited at the top of the limestone plateau with a moderate north-facing slope and an east-west soil gradient. It was purchased by Justin Onclin in 2005 and so the 2015 demonstrates the fruits of ten years of toil. The wines produced are elegant in style and very different to Jean Voisin, despite using the same consultant Hubert de Boüard and blend of grape varieties – a reflection of the different terroir. Les Angelots de Villemaurine 2015 has sweet berry fruits combined with tobacco and coconut oak. It is the lighter side of medium bodied with a fresh youthful character. With some aeration, richer berry flavours and spices emerge with a grainy and persistent liquorice finish. It is a blend of 95% Merlot picked between September 28 and October 9, and 5% Cabernet Franc picked on October 7, 2015. After a long maceration and fermentation on skins, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrel using 70% new and 30% second fill barrels.
