Clos de la Cure Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

2 reviews

Bramble fruit and spicy oak on the nose; restrained on the palate (reflecting the vintage) yet nicely balanced with a delicious herbal finish.

A portion of the vines are situated on the Saint Christophe des Bardes plateau and the rest are situated on the plateau of Saint Etienne de Lisse, covering a total area of 7.5 hectares. The vineyard has clay topsoil over limestone sub-soil. Vines are 25-30 years old with a vine density of 6600-9000 vines per hectare. Grapes are harvested both by hand and machine, yielding 35-40 hl per hectare. Vines are pruned in single guyot and leaf thinning and green harvesting is carried out. Prefermentation cold soaking. Vinification in tank with punching down and 3-4 weeks post-fermentation maceration in temperature controlled tanks. The wine was then matured between 12 - 15 months in barrel (50% new). Cellar potential between 10 - 15 years.

Fantastic Saint Émilion

A friend had bought me a bottle of the 2014 last year and we drank it mid way through last year - absolutely fantastic. The 2015 I purchased from Cheers was equally as incredible. We only drank it this weekend for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and my dad was amazed! Great red and a reasonable price.
