    Château de Villambis is located south of the Médoc peninsula. The vineyard spreads over 15 hectares, planted predominantly with Cabernet Sauvignon. From the exceptional 2010 vintage, this Cru-Bourgeois is a classic example of Haut-Medoc Cabernet Merlot. It shows lively black fruit, with smooth, smoky oak, and a composed refined yet intense finish that is fresh and beautifully balanced.

    Variety Description

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognised red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climate. Cabernet Sauvignon became internationally recognised through its prominence in Bordeaux wines where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's ageing potential.

    Country Description


    Practically all the most famous grape varieties used in the world's wines are French varieties, and wine is produced all throughout France. France is the second largest wine producer in the world after Italy. The wines produced range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally to more modest wines usually only seen within France. In many respects, French wines have more of a regional than a national identity, as evidenced by different grape varieties, production methods and different classification systems in the various regions. Some of the more famous wine regions in France include Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Loire, Chablis and the Rhône valley.

    Region Description


    A Bordeaux wine is any wine produced in the Bordeaux region of France, centred on the city of Bordeaux and covering the whole area of the Gironde department. Eighty-nine percent of wine produced in Bordeaux is red, with sweet white wines, dry whites, and also rosé and sparkling wines (Crémant de Bordeaux) collectively making up the remainder. The major reason for the success of winemaking in the Bordeaux region is the excellent environment for growing vines. The geological foundation of the region is limestone, leading to a soil structure that is heavy in calcium. Red Bordeaux is generally made from a blend of grapes. Permitted grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and rarely Carménère. White Bordeaux is predominantly, and exclusively in the case of the sweet Sauternes, made from Sémillon, Sauvignon blanc and Muscadelle.
