Other Reviews....
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.

This is showing its toast, with a coating of roasted vanilla, but offers a core of solid plum and blackberry compote flavors and a good racy feel on the finish.

James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

This is so delicious already with wonderful, tight and polished tannins, medium body and a long, flavorful finish. Always excellent quality for the money.

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.
