"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

2005 Chateau Les Roches de Ferrand Fronsac

"This wine is rich and medium-bodied and can well accompany meats, poultry, cheeses and other savory dishes. A deep black "toasty" fruit bouquet is followed by full, round fruit on the palate, supported by the structure imparted by both ripe fruit and oak barrel tannins, with a smooth finish leaving you wanting for nothing. Last, but not least, the wine is an excellent value."

2009 Chateau Moulin Pey Labrie Canon de Fronsac

"This is a big, serious, back-strapping wine meant for long-term aging. In fact, I wouldn-t touch it for another 4-5 years. It is clearly the most masculine, concentrated and structured wine of the Canon-Fronsac area. A lot of Merlot is in the wine, but Cabernet Franc and possibly a little Cabernet Sauvignon are also included. This inky purple wine displays notes of Asian plum sauce, creme de cassis and blackberry liqueur as well as a hint of lead pencil shavings. Big, full-bodied, and seriously endowed, this massive Canon-Fronsac needs time to calm down. However, everything is present - acidity, tannin, extract and substantial richness. This is an impressive wine as well as a sleeper of the vintage."-Robert Parker

2006 Chateau Meyney Saint Estephe

"Spicy raspberry and blackberry aromas lead to a full body, with sweet, ripe fruit, subtle silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. This wine is all in elegance and finish. Very fine."
