90 points "This is really beautiful and balanced, with berry and light vanilla character. Full-bodied, densely balanced yet refined and caressing. Beautiful wine. From American owner Colin Ferrenbach. Best after 2006. 4,830 cases made. (JS)" Best 2007-

91 points "While the 2005 does not equal the prodigious 2003 (the finest La Vieille Cure to date), this Merlot-dominated effort was fashioned under the guidance of Michel Rolland. It is a dense, powerful, dark ruby/purple-tinged offering exhibiting a big structure, loads of substance as well as extract, and high tannin. Give this sleeper of the vintage 2-3 years of bottle age and consume it over the following two decades. (89-91)" Best 2008-2028
