Chateau Les Vimieres 'Le Tronquera' Margaux 2020

Chateau Les Vimieres 'Le Tronquera' Margaux 2020

92 Points - Decanter. The owner of Château Les Vimières, Jacques Boissenot, was central to the development of new winemaking techniques in Bordeaux before he sadly passed away in 2014. He was voted Decanter magazine's Winemaker of the Decade in 2010 and this Margaux amply demonstrates how he has led the way for quality winemaking over a 50 year career.

Product Description

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".

Taste

The dark fruit is deliciously soft and ripe, whilst heady aromas of tobacco, leather and wet slate are carried on a gorgeous wave of acidity. This is a sublime Margaux, classically structured with dense fruit and supple tannins. This can be left to improve with age, and we can only imagine how good this will taste in a few years!

Wine Press

92 Points - Decanter (2020)

"Great depth and power here, concentrated with ripped tannins, but so classically formed that it is pretty irresistible, full of liquorice, saltine crackers, earth, blackberries, crushed stone and rosemary herbs. Seductive, and will age well. Eric Boissenot's home estate - and worth noting that for a consultant who is so intimately connected to the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, this is an unusual wine across the Médoc peninsula for being 100% Merlot. The same estate makes an AOC Haut-Médoc wine"

Food & Wine

Decant and serve with beef wellington or steak. Alternatively, a cheese board will bring out all the nuances of this wine.
