"The 2011 (mostly Merlot) struts its stuff with a deep ruby/purple color in addition to lots of creme de cassis, mocha and floral notes. Full-bodied with a juicy, opulent personality, impressive purity, a broad, expansive texture, sweet tannin, and enough acidity for definition and vibrancy in the finish, it should drink well for 10-12+ years. The 2011 is a sleeper of the vintage.
La Vieille Cure may well be the reference point for Fronsac given its performances over the last decade. Consistently one of the top two or three wines of the appellation."
