The owner of Château Les Vimières, Jacques Boissenot, was central to the development of new winemaking techniques in Bordeaux before he sadly passed away in 2014. He was voted Decanter magazine's Winemaker of the Decade in 2010 and this Margaux amply demonstrates how he has led the way for quality winemaking over a 50 year career. Only 20 cases have been made available from a client's reserves, making this a rare and exciting opportunity to add this to your collection.
About the Producer
Since 1984 Château Les Vimières has been a family run vineyard and is the personal property of the Boissenot family. Jacques Boissenot always kept a low profile, which is amazing considering that he consulted for four of the first growths of Bordeaux over a 50 year period! The property is now run by his son Eric, who has also taken over all consultancy work following a prolonged apprenticeship at his father's side.
Jacques and Eric have helped to improve the quality of around 180 different properties in the Medoc, including some of the most prestigious estates. In one of Decanter magazine's articles from 2010, it is noted that "if it got the nod in 1855, you can pretty much rest assured that the Boissenots are playing a part in it today".
The dark fruit is deliciously soft and ripe, whilst heady aromas of tobacco, leather and wet slate are carried on a gorgeous wave of acidity. This is a sublime Margaux, clasically structured with dense fruit and supple tannins. This can be left to improve with age, and we can only imagine how good this will taste in a few years!
