Fronsac is located in the eastern part of Bordeaux, on the “right bank” of the Gironde. The area is less known than the neighboring Pomerol, but the wines are certainly of great class. In this area lies the Château Villars, a family business, for many generations. The domain works from tradition, but does not shy away from changes if this benefits the quality of the wines. Since 1991, Thierry Gaudrie, a trained oenologist, has been responsible for the estate and the vinification process. The wines of Villars are made in the "classic" Bordeaux way and have received good appreciation for this for years in the serious wine press, from Wine Spectator to Decanter and Robert Parker.

The wines of Château Villars owe their personality to soils of clay and limestone. While the clay gives them their strength and depth, the limestone does a great job of regulating the water supply available to the vine. This is the "Grand Vin", the flagship wine, aged 100 percent in French oak barrels. 20 hectares of our vineyards, made up of the estate's oldest vines, are dedicated to its production.

On the nose, Château Villars shows great freshness, floral or fruity, depending on the year, and a touch of spice. On the palate it unfolds in powerfully worked, very elegant tannins. This wine gains complexity as it ages and can be cellared for 10 to 20 years. Modern and well-crafted Fronsac. 74% Merlot and 26% Cabernet Franc. 93/100James Suckling
