The clay-limestone soils and a third of Cabernet in the blend are no strangers to the success of this Fronsac. Alliance of concentration and precision, the nose deploys a beautiful expression of black fruits elegantly emphasized by aging. Powerful and smooth on the palate, the wine gradually gives way to ripe and powerful tannins which stretch the finish. Looks great today, however it would be a shame not to forget it in the cellar. Beautiful aromatic expression until the end of the mouth.

The deep ruby-hued 2018 Ch√Ęteau La Vieille Cure is a smoking wine that readers should snatch up! Lots of red and black currants, cedary spice, dried tobacco, and a touch of chalky minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a fruit-loaded, concentrated mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It has a touch of background oak, but that should integrate with 2-4 years in the cellar, and this gorgeous Fronsac will shine over the following decade or more.

This has a succulent feel, pulling you into its mix of fresh plum, red cherry and raspberry coulis flavors while bergamot and red tea accents stay in the background. Finish is juicy but tightly focused, with an underlying chalky thread lending precision. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030. 7,633 cases made.
