Fully aware of the care and respect required to restore a work of art, the Onclin family implemented a major upgrading programme to reveal the superb character of their terroir and to prepare the estate to receive visitors with a new ageing cellar and vat room, as well as renovating the underground cellars in a former quarry.
The vineyard, located on the Saint-Emilion clay-limestone plateau, is currently planted with 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Justin Onclin’s philosophy combines great respect for the terroir and an emphasis on excellence. Château Villemaurine has a remarkably long aftertaste, mineral overtones, and elegance, consistently expressing the subtle qualities of the best wines of Saint-Emilion, in keeping with an outstanding terroir. Villemaurine produces a second wine: les Angelots de Villemaurine.
