Type: Red Wine
Varietal: Red Bordeaux Blend
Country: France
Region: Bordeaux, Fronsac

"The basic Fontenil has a deep bluish purple color and relatively hefty alcohol at 14.5%, but it is not noticeable in this full-bodied, layered, opulent wine, with lots of black raspberry fruit intermixed with some blueberries and crushed rock. Both of these wines have a good 10-15 years of potential in a fine cellar."-Robert Parker

2010 Chateau Villars Fronsac

"A terrific wine from proprietor Thierry Gaudrie, this wine, which has a similar blend to the La Vieille Cure (73% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon), has an inky purple color and a big, sweet kiss of blueberry liqueur intermixed with creme de cassis, camphor, licorice and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied, rich and unctuously textured, this is a seriously endowed Fronsac to drink over the next 15+ years." -Robert Parker

2010 Chateau La Vieille Cure Fronsac

"Light, with friendly cassis and cherry fruit kissed with a hint of toasty vanilla. The finish is soft and rounded."
-Wine Spectator, 88 to 91 pts.

"This American-owned estate has been on a qualitative roll for over a decade and the 2010 should rival their 2005 and 2009 as one of the finest wines La Vieille Cure has made. The dense plum/ruby/purple-tinged 2010 exhibits beautiful notes of kirsch liqueur, black currants, licorice and forest floor. Lovely texture and purity, medium to full body and superb fruit intensity result in a gorgeous wine that will be accessible early, but capable of lasting 10-15 years." -Robert Parker

2003 Chateau Haut Bergey Pessac Leognan

"Dullish dark red. Coffee and mocha aromas. Moderately dense and chewy on the palate, with flavors of blackcurrant, mocha, chocolate, coffee and herbs. Seems a bit fuller in the middle than it was last year prior to the bottling. A low-acid wine with substantial tannins. Drink it over the next few years before it dries out." -Stephen Tanzer
