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-

92 points "The following sleeper of the vintage strongly suggests that La Vieille Cure is becoming one of Fronsac’s two or three finest estates. The finest wine yet made at La Vieille Cure, the 2003 should be on the shopping lists of consumers seeking tremendous quality/price rapport. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by sweet aromas of scorched earth, black raspberries, creme de cassis, and notions of cherries, smoke, and crushed rocks. This big, full-bodied, dense, captivating wine is structured as well as exceptionally long. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018+." Best 2007-2018
