Château La Vieille Cure


La Sacristie de La Vieille Cure


Harmony is a prerequisite for perfection.

When Château La Vieille Cure is blended, some batches are set aside, and are used to craft another blend called "second wine" in the Bordeaux region.

Our second wine is called "La Sacristie".

It is generally less rich in tannins than Chateau La Vieille Cure, and should be enjoyed within 2 to 4 years, preferably with meals.
 

The grapes are hand-picked off vines grown on a sloping hillside. A two-stage sorting process (before and after total destemming) makes it possible to select the very best grapes. They are then kept at automatically regulated temperatures for almost a month.

Our wines are aged 15 months in 100% French oak barrels, and bottled in the spring of the second year following the harvest.
