Chateau La Vieille Cure 2018
Blend: 87% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon
92-94 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown Wine Advocate "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 La Vieille Cure reveals a wonderfully savory nose of chargrilled meats, dried herbs and Marmite toast with a core of baked plums, blackberry preserves and dark chocolate. Full-bodied, the palate is laden with vibrant black and blue fruits plus loads of savory sparks and a plush texture, finishing with a refreshing lift."
93 points Jeb Dunnuck "The deep ruby-hued 2018 Château La Vieille Cure is a smoking wine that readers should snatch up! Lots of red and black currants, cedary spice, dried tobacco, and a touch of chalky minerality all emerge from the glass, and it's medium to full-bodied, with a fruit-loaded, concentrated mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and outstanding length. It has a touch of background oak, but that should integrate with 2-4 years in the cellar, and this gorgeous Fronsac will shine over the following decade or more."
92-93 points James Suckling "This is is so delicious already with wonderful, tight and polished tannins, medium body and a long, flavorful finish. Always excellent quality for the money."
89-92 points Antonio Galloni, Vinous "The 2018 La Vieille Cure is superb. Racy, creamy and generous, the 2018 possesses terrific balance and tons of poise. Red cherry jam, blood orange, mocha, mint, cinnamon and dried flowers fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. There is so much to like in the 2018 La Vieille Cure, most notably its sheer allure. Tasted two times."
