A Merchant's Pick

If Pomerol has Petrus and St. Emilion has Cheval Blanc, then Fronsac has La Vieille Cure, which just happens to be "the sleeper of the vintage." Robert Parker
    All of the aforementioned "right bank" Bordeaux regions produce some of the finest wines in the world. We are pleased that the pricing in Fronsac, however, has not experienced the astronomical price increases of the other regions. In our opinion, it's just a matter of time. Until then, you will be hard-pressed to find better Bordeaux value than Fronsac, and in particular Chateau La Vieille Cure.
    What we love about this Bordeaux - aside from its room filling bouquet and stunning balance - is that it has a silky finish. That has been the La Vieille Cure hallmark throughout the years. An added bonus of the wine is the wonderful acidity and approachable structure that will allow it to be enjoyed now and over the next twenty years. That is a rare combination from any Bordeaux and the reason we are once again featuring this stunning Chateau.
    Chateau La Vieille Cure is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with glorious black currant and licorice-infused black raspberry fruit, stunning density, "a real overachiever. Round, succulent and deeply expressive" it also boasts "raspberry jam, iron, smoke, herb and spice notes meld together in this impressive, voluptuous Fronsac. This is a very strong showing." Vinouis
