Natalie's Score: 88/100

The name Cellier des Dauphins is derived from its vineyards which once belonged to the son of the King of France, or the Dauphin. The vineyards are north of the Vaucluse, south of the Drome area where the soil is chalky-clay. A blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Cinsault. An incredible wine for the money! Enticing notes of cedar, hickory, cassis, blackberry and sage. Plush but great acidity and balance. Wow!

Grenache Syrah Cinsault food pairings: game, steak with grilled mushrooms, bison burgers, roast beef, strong cheeses.

Travis Oke rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

New bottle alert - I was a little disappointed to see the Dauphins bottles move from the cool retro-brandy shaped bottle to the sleek burgundian style - but at least now it fits into a wine rack.
Great CDR for the money - I buy two every LCBO visit. Cassis and blackberry but the fruit is nicely balanced by the acidity.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
