rating: 88-90

A sleeper of the vintage, the 2012 La Vieille Cure reveals a soft, round, charming plumpness as well as lots of black cherry jam notes intermixed with hints of licorice, incense and forest floor. Mediumbodied, richly fruity and seductive, it is best drunk over the next 6-8 years. Another sleeper of the vintage from this top Fronsac estate, American-owned La Vieille Cure is run by New York’s Colin Ferenbach. This 45-acre vineyard is planted with 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Spectator, May 2013
Château la Vieille Cure are all at least very good and might earn outstanding ratings when bottled.

Emphasis on the fruit. Really juicy, fresh and clean. Tannins ripe and fine. Good value drinking.

Deep dark cherry. Dark and fragrant. Fine, fresh tannins. Fresh, well structured and harmonious. Good
length. (JH).

score: 88-91

Fresh, with good cut, as cherry, cherry pit and plum notes race along, lined with violet and chalk
accents. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

score: 88-89

An attractive wine for the vintage with good fruit, medium body, and ripe tannins. Attractive.
Consistent quality.

La revue du vin de France - Juin 2013

Léger voile de réduction au premier nez, qui laisse place à des nuances de fruits noirs. Tanins
suaves et trame compacte pour ce joli vin sincère et classique.

Bettane & Desseauve - Avril 2013
points: 15,5 - 16

Rond et gras, belle souplesse charnue, allonge savoureuse et fruit mûr.
