2012 La Vieille Cure, Fronsac

SKU #1562427 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Arguably the bright, shining star of Fronsac these days, this blend of 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon from vines averaging 25 years of age seems to go from strength to strength. The 2012 is a knock-out, with an inky purple color and sweet cassis and kirsch notes as well as some licorice, mocha and earth. It is medium to full-bodied and concentrated, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is outrageously fine wine that sells for a song. It is a major sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-12 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 La Vieille Cure is once again a real overachiever. Round, succulent and deeply expressive, the 2012 hits all the right notes. A host of raspberry jam, iron, smoke, herb and spice notes meld together in this impressive, voluptuous Fronsac. This is a very strong showing. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2016)

88-91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh, with good cut, as cherry, cherry pit and plum notes race along, lined with violet and chalk accents. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2013)
