Clic Vin advices
With its 20 hectares of vines in one single plot, Chateau La Vieille Cure already appears on a famous map of the Guyenne region, known as the Belleyme map, dated 1780. The vineyards grow on the slopes facing the south west where they benefit from the sunlight and a good drainage. As the result, the grapes that grow here generously ripe and in perfect condition.
The property has been greatly renovated since it was bought by American friends at the end of 1986, who are great Bordeaux lovers and who recognised the exceptional potential of the estate. A large part of the vineyard was remodelled and replanted, without of course touching the very old vines of which one plot is a hundred years old. A new cellar was built with the latest equipment and aging in casks was begun. The overall objective of these investments was to make high quality wines capable of world-wide distribution.
Chateau La Vielle Cure used to be little known, but is now exported to more than 20 countries. The owners are driven by perfectionism and intend to continue with their efforts to raise their wine to be amongst the highest ranking in the Libourne area.
