Natalie's Score: 93/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A dynamic ’06 red, from a terrific small grower, that proves that the vintage wasn’t just great for the whites. Filled with aromas of raspberry, black cherry, oak spice and savory herbs, this beautifully made, long-finishing Pinot Noir is an ideal choice for current consumption or mid-term cellaring (3-5 years). Its vibrant upfront fruit easily balances out the tannins to create a wine that will be pleasant tonight. My note: A wine of great purity and limpidity: I love this style of Burgundy! Opulent notes of tart cherries, black raspberry, cranberry and dried herbs.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled lamb chops.

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.
