Chateau La Vieille Cure - Fronsac 2013
One of the most consistent properties in the whole of Bordeaux, this terrific Fronsac is based mainly on the Merlot grape and produces wines that are fleshy, well fruited and generously flavoured. Before the alcoholic fermentation, the grpes undego a cold soak which develops the dark fruit flavours and extracts the soft, ripe tannins. On the palate there are notes raspberry and cherries with some hints of liquorice backed by some dark chocolate. It's perfect for drinking now now and will delight most palates.
