Chateau Cardinal-Villemaurine Saint Emilion Grand Cru
Situated in the heart of St Emilion, one of the famous Bordeaux right bank communes, the name of this small 8ha vineyard comes from the period of the Saracen invasions around 742 AD, where an observation camp of the Moor armies became known as the “Ville des Maures”, the “Town of the Moors”.
70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak up to 2 years from vintage. A complex nose of spiced plums, leather and woody cigar box aromas. The palate has a full-texture and long, enduring savoury flavours.
