Intro to Clos de la Cure St Emilion –
Clos de la Cure is a very classy Saint-Emilion Grand Cru with an incredibly powerful, rich nose of ripe blackcurrants and chocolate and a full ripe lingering flavour.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Clos de la Cure Grand Cru St Emilion Bordeaux France is a lovely example of good value quality wine from St Emilion at this level with ripe fruit from the warm vintage that has retained some tannin so it is well balanced. 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 vines are 25-30 years old and the grapes are harvested both by hand and machine, yielding 35-40 hl per hectare. Fermentation takes place in tank followed by maturation for 12 – 15 months in new barrels and it has aging potential for between 10 – 15 years.
The producer –
Clos de la Cure is a beautiful walled 6 hectare vineyard situated near the old church of St. Christophe-des-Bardes, on the St. Émilion plateau. This estate and Château Milon are owned by Alexia and Pierre Bouyer and the estates represent more than seven generations of viticultural heritage. The purchase of a further 4.5 hectares in 2008, situated on a superb gravel terroir, increased the area of the estate to 18 hectares. In 2010, a parcel of 56 ares (1.38 acres) in Pomerol was added to the vineyards of the estate. Situated on the exceptional terroir of this prestigious appellation, Clos 56 was born. The domaine works a vineyard of high viticultural quality and treats it with all the respect due to a Grand Cru: an ecological approach to the running of the estate; carefully controlled yields and a vinification and aging process that brings out the best of the terroir. A production process that results in wines of high quality, marked by the fullness of ripe Merlot with intense red fruit aromas underpinned by delicate tannins.
