Château Les Vimières Haut-Médoc 2020
97 Points / Platinum Medal - Decanter. Since 1984 Château Les Vimières has been a family run vineyard and is the personal property of the Boissenot family. Jacques Boissenot consulted for four of the first growths of Bordeaux over a 50 year period! This is a remarkably balanced wine with elegant tannins and a long refreshing finish. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and aged for 18 months in Oak Barrels of which 33% is New Oak, Les Vimières is a wine that can be aged for up to 15 years. This is a rare gem, fit for any cellar.
Wine Press Ratings
97 Points / Platinum Medal - Decanter International World Wine Awards (2020)
"Enticing aromas of ripe black cherries, dark chocolate and espresso, with hints of roasted meats. An excellent intensity of mouth-filling black fruits, with generous oak displaying vanilla sweetness and a backbone of plush melting tannins. Long and energising."
92 Points - Decanter (2019)
"A cult wine in the Haut-Médoc because it is owned and made by Eric Boissenot, one of Bordeaux's leading wine consultants. Great quality, this is unfussy and balanced, while still being full of concentrated, well-extracted blackberry and blueberry fruits. A firm wall of tannins with enough flexibility to be a medium term drinker. Enjoyable."
90 Points - International Wine Report (2017)
"The 2017 Château les Vimières offers a nice mix dark cherries and plum followed by spices, tobacco and a dusting of licorice. This has a lovely velvety texture with a nice touch of acidity that frames the finish. Showing well and should be accessible upon release."
About the Producer
Since 1984 Château Les Vimières has been a family run vineyard and is the personal property of the Boissenot family. Jacques Boissenot always kept a low profile, which is amazing considering that he consulted for four of the first growths of Bordeaux over a 50 year period! The property is now run by his son Eric, who has also taken over all consultancy work following a prolonged apprenticeship at his father's side. Jacques and Eric have helped to improve the quality of around 180 different properties in the Medoc, including some of the most prestigious estates. In one of Decanter magazine's articles from 2010, it is noted that "if it got the nod in 1855, you can pretty much rest assured that the Boissenots are playing a part in it today".
