Other Reviews....
The 2023 La Vieille Cure has a pleasant nose with raspberry coulis and black berry fruit, touches of sous-bois evolving in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with saturated tannins, impressive depth and focus. The oak is neatly integrated, with just a bit of hardness on the finish. It should mellow with bottle age and come good in the end. Drink 2028-2038.

Neal Martin - Vinous

This shows tension and backbone with vivid acidity and inviting fruit character. Medium-bodied with firm tannins. Solid and structured.

James Suckling

A year-in, year-out smoking good wine as well as a perennial value, the 2023 Château La Vieille Cure is deep purple and reveals a great nose of black and blue fruits, spicy oak, graphite, and a touch of earth. It brings medium to full-bodied richness on the palate, with ripe, polished, yet building tannins and a great finish. Clearly destined to be an outstanding wine, I suspect it will need 2-3 years of bottle age.

Jeb Dunnuck

Richly textured, good depth of colour, sweet plum, grilled almond and vanilla bean edge that shows oak impact, but this has plenty of punch and character, an estate that delivers consistently, doing a great job again in 2023.

Jane Anson - Inside Bordeaux

Minty, with licorice, salty cherries, plums, and crushed stone notes start the wine off. From there, the wine is medium-bodied, fresh, soft, forward, refined, and fruity. If you are seeking a really nice wine, without spending a lot of bucks, check this wine out. You can enjoy it with pleasure on release, and for another 12 or more years after that. Drink from 2027-2040.
