Château La Vieille Cure Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

Fragrant, spicy nose, with some black currant leaf, graphite, cigar box and purple fruit. A little stiff and dusty at first, with a welcome if modest acid streak, finishing off with persistent tannins. A week in and this has actually improved quite a bit... easy to underestimate. Really generous, and I think this could have done another 5 years! Double decant recommended.

Ah, Bordeaux, can it be conquered? Right bank mellowness with violets, crushed petals, prunes on the back end. Incredibly light on its feet with a satisfying finish that lingers. Initially thought it was at peak but I think it has the grip to do a few more years.

Drinking perfectly. Earthy, mushrooms, stewed fruit, and hints of cigar box.

2004 Vintage. I really dug this. Super pretty great secondaries. Good power, kept evolving in the glass

Opened by mistake thought had multiple but was vertical of single bottle of '00-'09. Ruby color with purple tinge. Nice nose of dark fruits and earth. Peppers and savory on the palate. Supple and silky texture. Medium finish. 75% Merlot then Cab Franc. Drinking nicely. Should comp with other vintages! Curious ave CVed (1/17/18).'06. More earthy ave funk on nose. Good balanced and acidic texture on palate and not as silky. Good long finish. 8.9. Perhaps more food friendly due to acidity.

Good, straight forward right-bank Bordeaux, with the classic primary and secondary flavors you'd expect.
