2018 Château Villars  (Fronsac) 93

Much better in barrel than in bottle, the wine is lush, sensuous, rich and silky with layers of dark chocolate covered plums, licorice and cherries. There is ample fruit on the palate and in the long, plush finish. Give it a few years and it should fill out. 93 Points

Medium bodied, soft and forward, the wine goes in the direction of smoke, espresso, dark cocoa, licorice and red pit fruits. Give it a few years and it should fill out. 88-90 Pts

2011 Château Villars  (Fronsac) 88

Forward, easy drinking, medium bodied, already tasty concoction of ripe, juicy, sweet plums, licorice, espresso and coffee bean. A bit oaky in the finish, this is a true wine of easy pleasure, and not a wine for long term aging. The wine was made from blending 72% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. 88 Points

2010 Château Villars  (Fronsac) 90

If you're seeking a forward, ripe, plush wine filled with licorice, chocolate covered cherries and earth, with round, soft textures, that is drinkable on release for a fair price, look no further. It's not going to make old bones, but that misses the point on wines like this. 90 Points

2008 Château Villars  (Fronsac) 88

Fully mature, the round, soft, fleshy, ripe licorice and dark, cherry filled wine is not overly complex, but it is fun and easy drinking. However, if you are sitting on any, it is not a wine for aging. 88 Points

2005 Château Villars  (Fronsac) 86

Definitely better 5 years ago, the wine is in its decline. Still, if it has been well stored you can find, earthy, tobacco, leafy secondary notes accompanied by fading tones of red plums, cherries and cocoa. 86 Points
