Winemaker Notes

The wines produced at Chateau la Vieille Cure are, as has been the tradition for centuries, fine wines meant for careful consumption. While they can be enjoyed young, they are best appreciated at 4 years of age and more. With a perfect balance of fruit, aromas and tannins, they are made to be appreciated with meals but can be enjoyed at any time.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

Good dusty tannins, lively fruit, a wine that seems very complete. There is a touch of final wood and dark tannins.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points

The Wine Advocate

This property has made so many fine efforts lately that it is difficult to say the 2009 is better than their 2005. However, the 2009 is a charming, sexy, dense ruby/purple-colored offering displaying lots of ripe Merlot fruit intermixed with hints of charcoal, black raspberries, black currants, lead pencil shavings and truffles. This full-bodied, pure, nicely textured and layered Fronsac is a sleeper of the vintage that considerably over-performs for its modest price. Drink it over the next 15+ years. This is an obvious great value!

The estate runs along the River Isle at a height of 65 metres and not only drinks up the sun, but also enjoys good drainage. This situation makes... View More
