"Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois 2009 tasting in London. The Villambis 2009 has a tightly coiled cedary, tertiary bouquet with touches of tobacco developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded, ripe entry, good cohesion, very good delineation with a plush, generous finish of redcurrant, raspberry and cedar. Very fine. Tasted September 2011."
