Limpid and brilliant ruby. Youthful but savory aromas of fresh red currant, damson plum, cedar, tobacco, and mixed herbs waft from the glass. Leading with a fleshy core of plum fruits. While the mouthfeel is lush, with plush tannins balanced by a seam of fresh acidity. Medium-bodied, this classic claret is an exceptional value to discerning consumers of elegant, restrained wines. Drink Villambis Haut-Médoc 2015 now-2025.
90 Wine Advocate | Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the Villambis Haut-Médoc 2015 has a fresh, crisp nose of summer fruit, sage, and tobacco that leaps from the glass. I like the energy conveyed by this Haut-Médoc. The palate is medium-bodied with fine and supple tannin, well-judged acidity. Plus good depth and some lovely, caressing black fruit on the finish that lingers in the mouth. This is a well-crafted Haut-Médoc to savor over the next decade. Bravo.
