Tasting Notes
15,5/20 - Jancis Robinson
A tiny bit of leafiness on the nose and then lots of sweetness on the palate.Just a bit too "worked" for me.Lots of obvious oak influence.
3 stars - Decanter World Wine Award
3*/5:Dense red, good depth of spicy, proper Médoc fruit, a really well-made wine, classy and classic Haut-Médoc. Drink 2013-18. (16-plus points)

One word to describe my wine
Well balanced

The history of the Château
The Château de Villegeorge wines were highly sought after as early on as the 18th century, to the extent that they fetched prices equal to those of wines that would be classified as 3rd growths in 1855. In 1880 the domain was bought by the Clauzel family who turned it into a model vineyard. In 1932, Château Villegeorge was awarded as Cru Exceptionnel. The fine quality of the deep gravelly soils did not go unnoticed by Lucien Lurton who acquired the domain in 1973 and began to bring it to life again. In 1992, Marie-Laure took over the management of the property. In 1997, in the first stage of many renovations, the tank room was enlarged and an automated treatment centre for waste products was installed. At the end of 2007, the renovation work started again which involve expanding the barrel cellars, modernising the harvest reception area as well as building a tasting room. In 2003, Villegeorge was classified as a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur. The same year, we were granted Terra Vitis status for adhering to the strict rules and standards set for integrated production methods.
