Clos Villemaurine Saint-Émilion Grand Cru 2003

Clos Villemaurine is situated next to the town of Saint-Émilion in Bordeaux.  2003 was a very warm vintage in Bordeaux, which in my view has produced as series of buying opportunities.  This is another.  A saturated ruby in colour in the glass, the 2003 vintage of Clos Villemaurine opens to aromatics of game, bacon, leather, plums and plum skins.  The palate is mid weight, with reminders of licorice and plums and a long finish.  An excellent wine entering its drinking prime.
