Château La Vieille Cure 2018 – Fronsac

Château La Vieille Cure 2018 – Fronsac

The nose is mineral, fruity and offers a fine richness as well as a good definition. It reveals notes of blackberry, fleshy wild cassis and small notes of small wild berries associated with hints of Sichuan pepper as well as a varietal hint and very discreet hints of zan. The palate is fruity, mineral, well-balanced, structured and offers a good definition, a fine juiciness, a mineral/finely acidulous frame, freshness, tension as well as a small suavity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy/fleshy blackberry, small juicy/ripe black berries and small notes of cassis associated with a touch of flowers (cornflower, iris) as well as hints of cocoa, zan and an imperceptible varietal hint (in the background). Tannins are well-built. Good length.
