    Château La Vieille Cure (92 Parker Rating below) is one of the benchmark producers in the right bank of Bordeaux. The soil found in this site is heavy on limestone and the average age of the vines are 40+ years old and are all hand-harvested. Indigenous yeasts are used in the cellar. A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, Château La Vieille Cure is one of the stronghold of these terroirs located in the north of Bordeaux adjacent to Pomerol and Saint-Emilion. Parker review is below. Rating 92+ Robert Parker Wine Advocate - Deep garnet-purple in color, the La Vieille Cure opens with cedar chest, graphite and tree bark scents, giving way to a core of baked blackberries, stewed plums and cherry compote, with wafts of Sichuan pepper and star anise. The full-bodied palate is wearing a lot of oak at this stage, with a good core of baked black fruits and loads of exotic spice accents, supported by grainy tannins and enough freshness, finishing woody. Drink over the next 12-15 years.
