Reviews and Ratings

Gayraud et Fils. A robust southern French red wine with aromas of black fruit, smoke and tar. Finishes with dark spices and toasty oak. Pair with a rare steak. MINE: This southern French red wine has firm tannins and could use more cellar time. Decant 2 hours. The winery has been owned by the same family for years and formed a union of Cahors winemakers in the 1930s, the Confrérie des vins de Cahors. Today the estate is owned by Alain Gayraud. OTHER: While there are powerful tannins at work here, this wine is mainly full of rich black fruits that have a juicy side from the acidity. The addition of Tannat brings even more tannin to the wine while also giving it density and longevity. Drink from 2019. The wine comes from a long-time wine family that tended the few remaining Malbec grapes that survived phylloxera of late 1800s. Alain Gayraud is the current owner. Score - 92 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, Aug. 1, 2015). - 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.
