90 points "Wow, what a sexy wine! Deep ruby/purple, with a glorious nose of kirsch liqueur, caramel, and toast, this sweet, expansive, medium to full-bodied wine marries elegance and power brilliantly. The acidity is low, the fruit ripe, the tannins integrated, and the impression one of sumptuous, concentrated fruit. Drink it over the next decade. This is the best La Vieille Cure made to date."
