Natalie's Score: 89/100

This classic Bordeaux blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon delivers supreme value for the Bordeaux region where you'll be hard-pressed (no pun intended) to find this quality at this price point. Very balanced and elegant, yet full-bodied with dark fruit aromas and just enough toasty oak. Decant for an hour and it'll award you even more pleasure.

Reviews and Ratings

Dianne Fisher - Sommelier, ISG rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

My score is based on its structure and things to come. Muted on the nose in the glass so the bottle went through a double decant which was worthwhile, to separate the sediment that had formed. Benchmark Bordeaux aromas and full grippy tannins. The acidity is there to support cellaring this wine for a couple more years that it will be sure to benefit from. Glad I bought a second bottle!

Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Bordeaux Superieur punches well above its classification with rich cassis fruit supported by hints of vanilla, violet and herb. Approachable tannins provide good structure, balanced alongside fresh acidity and a satisfying length. Perfect with stuffed blue cheese burgers. Enjoy through 2015. Tasted March 2014.

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.

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.
