2014 Chateau La Vieille Cure
The Château la Vieillecure 2014 feels overripe on the nose, raisin and prune scents rendering the aromatics a little predictable and simplistic. The palate is high-toned, full-bodied, dense and assertive with heady black fruit and plenty of glycerin on the licorice-infused finish. It a turbocharged Fronsac that feels a little labored in comparisons to its peers. Drink 2018 - 2028.

Solid, featuring a kirsch core, framed with licorice and violet notes. Offers ample toast, but this is polished and integrated.

Creamy, dark fruit notes with a hint of cassis. Toasty oak apparent on the palate but explosion of juicy fruit behind. Tannins fine and firm. Sure-fire value this year.
