Available for:
A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, our wine translates into an aromatic complexity that is both fine and robust. The rather intense red fruit notes are enlivened by a subtle spicy touch. Its purple adornment and elegant roundness give it a certain sensitivity, while its solid structure, its chewiness, as well as its fleshy side, give it a powerful character.

Always a winner, I can't remember the last vintage of this cuvée that didn't put a smile on my face. The 2020 Château La Vieille Cure has lots of up-front cassis and black cherry fruits to go with complex floral, lead pencil, and green tobacco-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, seamless, and elegant, it has the vintage's concentrated, pure style front and center. It will evolve for 10-12 years.

The deep purple-black colored 2019 La Vieille Cure comes prancing out of the glass with regal scents of boysenberries, warm black plums, black cherry preserves and kirsch plus nuances of violets, espresso and camphor with a waft of black olives. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with bright, pure black fruit layers, framed by wonderfully ripe, finely grained tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and fragrant. Stunning!

The 2020 La Vieille Cure is fabulous. Rich and sumptuous in the glass, the 2020 offers up a heady mélange of black cherry, mocha, licorice, plum, incense and chocolate. There's gorgeous depth and texture here. The 2020 is a superb Vieille Cure.

This has a nice fresh edge to the mix of damson plum and bitter cherry coulis notes, while leather, tobacco and savory hints fill in the background. Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2023 through 2033. 10,480 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
