2016 Chateau La Vieille Cure Red Fronsac 750Ml

From one of the top terroirs in Fronsac and made with the help of talented Jean-Luc Thunevin, the 2016 Ch√Ęteau La Vieille Cure is 80% Merlot and 10% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, all aged in 50% new oak (a small part is also brought up in tank). This deep purple-colored effort got a big "Wow" in my notes and boasts a head-turning bouquet of cassis and black raspberry fruits intermixed with notes of dried flowers, vanilla bean, and leafy herbs. With remarkable purity, medium to full body, silky tannins, and a great finish, it's a thrilling Fronsac that I suspect might be one of the best to date. Drink it over the coming 10-15 years. Rated 93 Points Jeb Dunnuck.
