Natalie's Score: 92/100

Classic and complex. Needs some cellar time as well as decanting 2 hours once opened. Aromas of mocha and toast from the oak aging on the nose mingle beautifully with the dark fruit and violets. Multiple layers and satisfaction. Great dinner party wine.

Meritage food pairings: filet mignon, coffee-rubbed steak.

Terry Jeans rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

mocha, rich dark fruit, cedar box with complex flavours and a long finish.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

I loved this Bordeaux with its Mocha flavours, big rich fruits in the glass and toasty oak. I enjoyed this wine with a pot roast done in the slow cooker and it was a match made in heaven.
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Grand Cru Château Pipeau has intense notes of black cherry, pine, cigar box, clove, vanilla and faint leather. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; BALANCED with good acidity, grippy tannins (decant for 30+ min) and a long to extra-long finish. Enjoy this wine on-its-own; drink now – 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL to DIVINE, 92+ pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted Nov/13.

Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Amazing sweet spices with loads of yummy dark fruit in this young Bordeaux. Molasses cookies, ginger snaps, blueberries, mineral, quite simply a relatively complex crowd pleaser that will pair well with a wide range of food or drink beautifully on its own.

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.
