Château de Villegeorge 2010 - Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois


Tasting starts with a very expressive nose of strawberry jam and spices. Château de Villegeorge 2010 - an outstanding vintage in Bordeaux - is a fruity Haut-Médoc, where fruit aromas are nicely balanced by tannins and a hint of toast from the ageing in oak barrels. Already great to drink today, it also has a great potential of cellaring. This wine has received many rewards from various critics and we definitely understand why.

86/100 "From another member of the Lurton family (probably the biggest clan in all of Bordeaux), this blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 21% Merlot offers attractive black olive and black currant notes intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, garrigue and underbrush. Drink it over the next 5-6 years."

Wine-Spectator.jpg

89/100 "This has a dark, dense core of bramble, currant paste and fig preserves, all framed by lively roasted apple wood and anise notes. The racy finish showcases the graphite edge of the vintage. Drink now through 2019. – JM"

Wine-Enthusiast.jpg

90/100 "This fine, rich, fruity wine is from a chateau controlled by the Lurton family. It is solid, concentrated and dense, packed with blackberry flavor. Deliciously juicy now, it has the tannins and acidity that suggest it is capable of aging for many years."
