Reviews and Ratings

Wow, this is terrific for Bordeaux at this price from a strong vintage! Aromas of blackberry and cassis with some toasty oak. Decant 1 hour and pair with a juicy rare steak. MINE: Wow, what a great price for this terrific 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon red Bordeaux blend from Château De Marsan. The 2010 is a strong vintage with aromas of blackberry and cassis with some toasty oak. Decant 1 hour and pair with a juicy rare steak. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: 70 % Merlot, 30% Cab Sauv- Shows red jammy aromas with cassis and slight mint. Palate gives cassis, mint, raspberries, slight milk chocolate and toast. XD with slight mocha on finish. OTHER: Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: This wine is the real deal for a true "claret" fan. Not overwhelming, but perfect for food. We tend to want the blockbuster wines when it comes to Bordeaux, but we forget about all of the small producers from satellite appellations that are just meant to be consumed and not fussed over. From the very strong 2010 vintage, this wine features cherry, linzer torte, plum, graphite and smokey notes. 89 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com). OTHER: Jerry W rated this wine as 89/100. OTHER: Pawel Cebo rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review: Not bad! OTHER: This estate began producing wine in the 17th century. Pierre de Marsan was a descendant of the Viscounts of Marsan, founders of the town of Mont-de-Marsan in the Landes department. In 1630, he married a wealthy heiress whose dowry included a large property in Lestiac. Look for currant, plum and savoury herbal characters in this wine and pair it with lamb kebabs or grilled mushroom salad (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
