    July 5, 2017 - 3rd tasting over 3 years. It's still Bordeaux but this time it seems more apparent that a "Jesus Dose" was added for the ripe vintage. Where it was ripe and so very fruit forward it has now become diluted and separated. Drink now!

    April 7, 2017 - This is my second, independent, tasting of the 2010 vintage; I have been cellaring it here in South Florida at 17 degrees C for almost 4 years; mis en bouteille au chateau; Saranty Imports, White Plains, NY; since the name of the wine is only printed in caps, where French orthography allows the omission of accent marks, "CURE" could mean either 'cure' (medical, etc) or a prelate in the Catholic Church (with the acute accent) -- I suspect the latter is meant; 14.5% alcohol, solid foil, real cork, vinturied and tasted 10 minutes later; medium legs, inky red; fragrant, inviting nose with notes of alcohol & DEEP fruit, medium to full bodied, hints of stone fruit, especially cherries + chalk & minerals, vanilla on the finish, very dry but also fruit forward, complex layering, dryness on the back of the tongue, fruit at mid-palate; could be cellared a lot longer; pair with lamb, fried chicken

    March 8, 2017 - This is really punching way above its weight and is such great value. Although the nose is a little green, in the mouth blackberry and plum swirl with good hearty tannins. A great finish completes the wine. 14.5% proof this is starting to drink now with a few hours in the decanter and could continue to improve.

    February 11, 2017 - Brilliant stuff. Full body, black red color, this is way above it's pedigree. Black fruit, mature and powerful, showing notes of charcoal, coffee and cola. Elegant, freshly persistent bordeaux with a long finish.

    January 1, 2017 - I would not believe those that consider this wine past its prime. Decanted for a couple of hours but tannins remained too dominant. Nevertheless, tertiary aromas are already developing with some nice cedar wood.
