“The 2004 shows the property at its best. The blackcurranty aromas do not lack succulence and charm, yet the wine has considerable power, vigor and balance, with an abundance of black fruit flavours and fine length.”

"La Vieille Cure’s amazing 2005 is even better than their terrific 2003 and 2000. The 2005 boasts an inky/ruby color as well as a gorgeously sweet perfume of charcoal, black cherries, black currants, and spring flowers as well as an underlying mineral component. Superb concentration, full-bodied power, wonderful symmetry, purity, and texture, and a multidimensional mouthfeel are all found in this fabulous sleeper of the vintage."

Recently, however, a run of superior vintages and booming demand in the Far East have put pressure on pricing and there are very few bargains to be found.

Over on the Left Bank of the Gironde in the Médoc, at the aspirational end of the spectrum, we have secured another small parcel of the celebrated Leoville
