Description

A new chapter for this Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Classé

The estate

The first traces of Villemaurine date back to the Moorish period, when the place was called "Ville Maure". Today, Château Villemaurine belongs to the Lefèvre family, owners of several châteaux including Château Sansonnet. The 2021 vintage is their first wine as the owners of this estate. Eager to preserve the identity of this wine, the Lefèvre family has chosen to change the ageing process for this vintage in order to reduce the woodiness and leave more room for the fruit and aromas to fully express themselves. This Grand Cru Classé produces illutrious wines in this fine appellation, wines that are in keeping with its extraordinary terroir.

The vineyard

Superbly situated in the heart of the village of Saint-Émilion, the vineyard of Château Villemaurine covers 7 hectares of vines, 6 hectares of which are in production. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted on clay-limestone soils resting upon the famous asteroid limestone subsoils. Château Villemaurine bears the HVE level 3 certificate.

The vintage

Throughout this challenging year, the Villemaurine vineyard did not suffer from pests and diseases, particularly thanks to the perfect and existing vineyard management of the estate's team.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvesting in crates, double vibrating sorting table, manual sorting and densimetry, gravity-fed vatting. The pre-fermentation maceration is then carried out cold. Pumping over, punching down and fermentation are carried out in barrels. The wine is aged in 80% new barrels and 20% in second-fill barrels for 18 months. 2 amphorae complete the ensemble.

The blend

Château Villemaurine 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (92%) and Cabernet Franc (8%).
