Natalie's Score: 90/100

A full-bodied, chalky-dry red wine blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes, with Grenache adding extra plushness to the wine. Loads of blackberry, cassis, and other dark fruits and just enough toasty oak. Beautifully textured wine with a vivacious palate. This big red is a flagship wine for the Roussillon region. Good cellar candidate.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From my favourite producer in the Roussillon, this wine is so layered and complex, featuring crushed rock, black plum skin, cherry pit, cassis, lavender, white pepper, grape must, mineral, and black olive brine. Loads of tactile sensation, this wine never gets boring. 92 Points. Drink now through 2024. (ottawawinejournal.com)
this winery's vineyards are deeply influenced by the Mediterranean Sea, which also provide some of the oldest soils in France for the country. The wine is aged in large oak casks and demi muids (Languedoc traditional barrel of 600 litres) for 2 years. - 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.
