Chateau Villars is based in the up and coming Bordeaux wine appellation of Fronsac, just to the north of St.Emilion. It is a small, quality-focussed chateau which has been owned by the Gaudrie family for 7 generations.
This blend of 81% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from 40 year old vines planted on the estate’s best clay and limestone soils. 2015 was a warm and sunny vintage, giving the wine rich red fruit flavours and perfectly ripe, silky smooth tannins. It is just starting to drink really nicely after 5 years in bottle, with impressive depth and complexity. Delicious, mellow, and smooth, this is great value Bordeaux!
