This is typically one of the finest offerings of Fronsac, but I am not convinced the 2009 will eclipse their magnificent 2005, although it will certainly give the latter wine a run for its money. The opaque purple-hued 2009 offers a beautiful aromatic display of camphor, blueberries, acacia flowers, raspberries and crushed rocks. Full-bodied and pure with a nicely layered texture, the vintage’s unctuosity and thickness as well as freshness and definition, this sleeper of the vintage is another beauty from La Vieille Cure. It should drink well for 15+ years.

Tight and tense. Very chewy but no shortage of ripe, not over the top, fruit.

The fabulous 2009 will most certainly exceed the outstanding 2008. This is the second consecutive success story for this overachieving estate. It boasts an opaque ruby-purple color followed by mulberries, cherry liqueur, flower, stone-dust, and mineral perfumes. There is deliciously complex fruit with density, a full-body, a rich mouth, a seamless finish, and substance. Readers should take note ot this Fronsac. The potential is great when you consider the persistence ot the length, the good definition and wonderful purity. Maturity 2014-2028

Couleur sombre et intense. Nez fruité, mûr et légèrement animal. Bouche moelleuse en entrée, se développant aromatique avec du goût. Nuances exotiques dans la saveur et une finale légèrement tannique. L'élevage devrait le grandir.
