Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Alex: You should definitely grab this one for your Chablis fix. With 13 years of age it's perfectly ready to drink in my view, with a lovely aromatic complexity. Expect notions of ripe white peach, sandalwood, petrol, salted cashews, brown butter, seaspray and grilled lemon. The palate is thriving with a sprightly acidity, good depth, and supple notes of citrus and nuts. It finishes with verve, offering what you'd expect from $40-$50 Chablis with the bottle aging essentially on the house. A favourite of a table of all my friends. Gotta love it! 92pts

Priya: I do love it too! Especially as it seems we're not being charged for the aging of this beauty. The colour reminds me of Gewurtztraminer - so rich and golden. Love the nose - caraway seeds, hints of nutmeg, and maybe some peach. Quite flavorful and more full-bodied than you might expect from a Chablis. 90pts
Domaine Daniel-Étienne Defaix Côtes De Lechet (2003). has a lot of minerality and smoke on the wine. Pair with oyster pot pie or andouilettes. - 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.
