Description

The Château Villegeorge wines were highly sough after as early on as the 18th century, to the extent that they fetched prices equal to those of wines that would be classified as 3rd growths in 1855. In 1880 the domain was bought by the Clauzel family who turned it into a model vineyard. When a group of Bordeaux wine merchants established the Crus Bourgeois classification in 1932 only six were awarded the coveted title of Crus Exceptionnel, among them Château de Villegeorge. Its classification was re-confirmed in 1966.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful deep red cherry colour leading to a complex and harmonious nose expressing aromas of violets, mint, ripe fruit with stones such as cherries, peaches, flint, and a hint of toastiness and roasted coffee. On the palate it is smooth and fleshy with aromas evolving towards raspberries, black currants, vanilla and sweet spices. The tannins are refined and elegant. This is a balanced wine with a good finish.

FOOD PAIRING

Matching food: grilled meat, red poultry and cheese.
