rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Although this is a beautiful representation of a Languedoc wine, I found some of the tasting notes rather different and pleasantly enjoyable!

This is a rich red colour in the glass, on the nose there are plums with ripe red cherries, then an herbaceous border earth note followed by wild floral rose hip tones.

On the palate the are black berries, blueberries and red currants followed by a subtle undertone of floral rose notes. A delicious toasted almond becomes present and followed by coffee. Tere is a good pepper spice presentation with a touch of petroleum . There are long dry tannins and quite honestly I loved this wine to drink just as is, but if you really needed to accompany it with food then I would suggest lamb or duck and quite honestly chicken too!

Bottoms up!

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.
