The Villemaurine name made its first appearance in this century. During this period, the Moors set up an entrenched camp called “Ville Maure”, a place which over time became Villemaurine.
Villemaurine now belonged to Antoine Limouzin, a local public figure and the first Clerk of the port of Libourne.
The Féret edition of that year mentions Villemaurine as a First Growth of Saint-Emilion under three different owners: Morange, Troquard and Pierre Jean.
It was now the turn of the Onclin family to write a new chapter in the history of Villemaurine. As a passionate wine enthusiast, a connoisseur thanks to his heritage, and having been a wine négociant eager to produce his own wines, Justin Onclin was immediately attracted by the extraordinary potential of Château Villemaurine.
Justin Onclin produced his first vintage of Château Villemaurine in this year.
80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.
Asteria limestone plateau.
