The 2015 La Vieille Cure is exceptional. Rich, ample and creamy, the 2015 offers superb intensity throughout. Dark cherry, plum, menthol, spice and licorice are some of the notes that build into the sumptuous finish. Even with all of its intensity, this modern, racy Fronsac retains terrific freshness and overall energy. There is so much to like. Tasted three times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 La Vieille Cure has a clean and precise bouquet: black cherries, wild strawberry and subtle floral scents emerging from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent and fleshy tannin. There is impressive weight here. It is very smooth in texture with a figgy, cedary finish that needs to develop just a little more freshness during its barrel maturation. Still, this Fronsac has good potential and I expect it to settle comfortably at the top of my banded score, once in bottle. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2028

LVC made the grade this year with blackberry, mineral and spice aromas and flavors. Walnut skin too. Full body, integrated tannins. Long and beautiful. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

A very bright, lively style, with a light peppery edge to the red currant and cherry flavors, backed by fresh savory and tobacco notes. This flirts with the herb side of the spectrum, but the fruit is solid. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Very dark crimson. Good focus of ripe fruit on the nose. Slightly sweet and sour rather than well integrated, but an honest country wine. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2027

Rich, round and full flavoured with spice and dark fruit notes. A lovely mid-palate; tannins well rounded. Seductive wine that will be accessible early. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2019-2028
