Château Villars is an estate that is very dear to me. Ever since I opened the Corkscrew back in 1996, this delicious Bordeaux has been on the shelves (we started with the 1994 vintage)! They are one of the most consistent vineyards that I have ever worked with, each year delivering another simply extraordinary wine. I tip my hat to Château Villars for all of their hard work over the years and for helping to build the Corkscrew into what it is today. Introducing people to wonderful artisanal, terroir-driven wines like this one– that’s why I opened the Corkscrew so many years ago. Enjoy the 2009 Grand Vin de Château Villars… yet another gorgeous vintage.
Seven Generations of Great Wine
Dating all the way back to the dawn of the 20th century, Château Villars has been on the map as a producer of amazing wine, winning a gold medal at the World’s Fair in Antwerp in 1907. Staying true to over a century of tradition, while utilizing new-age oenological developments, the wines of this estate have soared in flavor and complexity.
A blend of 77% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, and 6 % Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine captures the age of very old vines and century-tested winemaking technique in every bottle. Twenty hectares (almost 50 acres) of the estate’s oldest vines are dedicated to its production! Dark cherry, blackberry, cassis, earth and graphite swirl like a tornado of aromas out of the glass. Up front, it coats the whole palate with dark, rich fruit flavor. Its medium to full body displays a wonderful mineral structure mid-palate, with interwoven blueberry and blackberry fruit that finishes very smoothly with notes of vanilla and a light spice. This wine is incredibly soft and easy drinking; it would pair with any meats off the grill this summer, or save it for heartier fall and winter dishes in a few months. At 15% off a bottle or 20% off 6 bottles or more (no further discounts apply), your new table Bordeaux is waiting for you!
Don’t miss this opportunity at one of my oldest favorites. Available for this week only (7/24/14 through 7/30/14). We hope to see you in the shop during our sale!
