Château de la Vieille Chapelle was founded in 2006, after much searching from founders Frédéric and Fabienne Mallier. They had a desire to only begin this adventure on the perfect vineyard in Bordeaux. The Estate consists of 21 hectares along the Dordogne river in a beautiful environment.
Located on the Fronsac district, Chateau de la Vieille Chapelle produces on 9 hectares between 35 to 45,000 bottles per year in AOC Bordeaux, AOC Bordeaux Supérieur, Vin de France.
In 2013, they completed their conversion to organic farming, then they became certified biodynamic in 2017. Currently, all harvesting is performed manually, with no additives, fining and filtration.
Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve has all the trapping of a great classic aged Bordeaux red wine. Yet, Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve is unfiltered, organic, biodynamic and with a low sulfite content. This is not the normal for Bordeaux. The lower intervention and natural process means that Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve truly allows the grapes to speak for themselves. You can feel the effects of the terroir work wonderfully against classic French oak secondary aromas.
The Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve has a great, powerful nose of red fruits. Then, Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve has a very powerful tannic mouthfeel, with further flavours of blackberry, strawberry and a hint of vanilla and liquorice.
While the 2019 would make a wonderful wine for 2022, there’s definitely room for the Château de la Vieille Chapelle Cuvée Reserve to develop in really interesting ways over the next few years.

In the monthly wine subscription, you receive a monthly delivery of wines curated by our sommeliers, based on the type preference you select (red wine, white wine or both). This helps subscribers to discover new styles and varieties, which you wouldn’t normally come across or buy. Wine club members pay a selected amount into their wine club account every month. We don’t deliver any wine to them until they place an order for the specific wines they chose using their account balance. In short, the subscription product is for wine drinkers wanting to discover new wines and are happy for us to chose for them where the wine club is for those who know what they like and want to have control over which wines they receive. Both monthly subscriber and wine club members receive discounted prices on all orders.
