Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust red with mature dark fruit aromas. Pepper sprinkled on top of deep fleshy black fruit. Full-bodied but pleasantly so and seductively slippery smooth. Quite a spectacular dinner party wine, party if the conversation hasn’t got rolling yet.

Food pairings: roast beef, prime rib.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A full bodied charmer, with notes of fig, baked cherry, nutmeg and clove. Mid weight tannins are well integrated, providing structure without overbearing. Excellent alongside braised lamb shank. Enjoy through 2019. Tasted March 2014.
The 2010 vintage if a blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes grown in lieu-dit Les Pialons - only several miles from Vieux Telegraphe's La Crau vineyard. These grapes are picked about 2 weeks later than La Crau and the wine is matured for 18 months in concrete tanks. Source: Winery

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.
