- Ch La Vieille Cure Fronsac 2004 Product #19150 (In Stock)
While Bordeaux’s 2004 vintage doesn’t get a lot of respect, there are some great 2004s out there at fantastic value prices. That’s certainly the case with the 2004 La Vieille-Cure from the commune of Fronsac, just west of more famous Saint-Emilion. Robert Parker has more less nailed the description of this wine – it’s a big mouthful of delicious Bordeaux that’s showing beautifully now and will go strong in the cellar for another 10 years.
“As was the 2003, this is another big time sleeper of the vintage. The dense ruby/purple-tinged 2004 offers a sweet perfume of framboise, black cherry liqueur, cedar, and spice. Supple-textured, medium to full-bodied, expansive, and savory with superb purity and texture, it can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. This property has been on a qualitative roll and still remains one of Bordeaux’s finest values.” Wine Advocate 90 points
