The 2015 La Vieille Cure is superb. Ample and explosive on the palate, with tremendous depth, the 2015 is an arrestingly beautiful wine that never lets up. Red cherry jam, licorice, new leather, blood orange and spice all infuse this flamboyant, spectacularly rich Fronsac. What a wine! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2018)

"A year in, year out value, the 2015 La Vieille Cure might just be the best yet. This full-bodied, opulent, incredibly sexy 2015 gives up loads of black currants, tobacco, Asian spices, and earth-like aromas and flavors. With low acidity, a mouth-filling, dense, sumptuous texture, and sweet tannin, it’s a downright old-world fruit bomb that’s a joy to drink. Buy a case and drink bottles over the coming decade or more."

A semi vertical comparison. The 2012 is really, really good. The 2015 is a knockout. Full-bodied and supple. Robust flavor showing blackberry, currant, rose petal, and iron shavings. A long, lingering finish. I got this in the $20s and it’s a steal. Would be a good introduction to bordeaux beginners.
