Wine Description

(From 2014 Vintage) The wines produced at Château la Vieille Cure are, by tradition, fine wines for conoisseurs and for aging. While some vintages benefit from waiting 10 or more years, most are best appreciated between 4 and 6 years. With a perfect balance of fruit, aromas and tannins, they are ideal accompaniments to a meal, including spiced and spicy dishes, but can be enjoyed at any time.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2005 boasts an inky/ruby color as well as a gorgeously sweet perfume of charcoal, black cherries, black currants, and spring flowers as well as an underlying mineral component. Superb concentration, full-bodied power, wonderful symmetry, purity, and texture, and a multidemensional mouthfeel are all found in this fabulous sleeper of the vintage.
