Chateau la Vieille Cure Fronsac 2004
|Brand||Chateau la Vieille Cure|
Wine AdvocateAs was the 2003, this is another big time sleeper of the vintage. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 offers a sweet perfume of framboise, black cherry liqueur, cedar, and spice. Supple-textured, medium to full-bodied, expansive, and savory with superb purity and texture, it can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. This property has been on a qualitative roll and still remains one of Bordeaux's finest values.
Wine SpectatorMedium- to full-bodied, with rich blackberry flavor and hints of flowers and minerals. Tightly packed, with intense fruit and firm tannins on the palate. Sturdy medium finish. All there, just needs time. Best after 2008. 6,000 cases made.
