Ripe and structured, this sports a vivid core of cassis and plum that races along, with fine-grained structure and light anise, bay and chalk notes hanging in the background. The long finish has cut and drive, with the cassis accent pushing through with determination. Rock-solid. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2026.
With its twenty hectares in one single plot in Fronsac, Château La Vieille Cure is one of the benchmark producers in the right bank of Bordeaux. The soil found in this site is heavy on limestone, lending the two wines at this estate a remarkably fresh quality. The average of the vines are 40+ years old and are all hand harvested. Indigenous yeasts are used in the cellar and the wines are aged in barrique, with about 30% of the barrels new. From the flagship Fronsac to the second label Sacristie de la Veille Cure, the wines have the ability to age gracefully for decades and are delicious textbook examples of pristine Bordeaux.
