Château La Vieille Cure has a one-piece vineyard of 20ha in the community Saillans. Most Fronsacs from this community belong to the best within their appellation because of the higher position and the lime-clay terroir. Wine has been made there since 1780. The vineyard is wonderfully situated on the plateau of Saillans, with a section located on the south-east hills alongside the river Isle at a height of 65 meters. Because of this, the vineyard enjoys a sunny exposition and a perfect drainage. All of this gives the wine a generous and mature taste with mineral touches from the terroir. In 1986, American friends (Gant/Ferenbach and Sachs) bought the property but also renewed it. Moreover, did particular re-plantations without harming the very old grapevines (some are more than 100 years old). These old grapevines add an extra dimension to this marvelous wine from its appellation. Since July 2018, the property was sold to the French entrepreneur Mr. Jérôme Pignard who continues the success in the same qualitative manner.
