Guide Bettane & Desseauve 2015 - Note 15,5/20

 

"Le clos de la Cure offre en 2012 une visage assez précis, un rien lisse, avec des tanins agréablement patinés. Il sera prêt à boire assez vite, mais il méritera un passage en carafe."

Description

The Clos de la Cure is situated on the left bank of the Vienne river in the commune of Sazilly, the vines are an average age of 35 and are grown on limestone and gravel.

 

This cuvée can be kept for an average of 5-6 years and offers a wine of character affirmed by a relatively light upbringing in oak that rounds its tannins.

 

"How gourmet! Dense substance supported by supple, unctuous tannins. Ample in the mouth with black fruits, blackcurrant, spices and cloves. Beautiful length." Jan. 2013
