Reviews and Ratings

So pretty and refreshing yet this southern French rose packs a (flavour) punch). Medium to almost full-bodied for rosé. Lovely flavours of summer strawberries and raspberries on the nose of this French rosé. Dry and refreshing. Works as an aperitif or companion to seafood. Finishes with wind-swept lavender and wild herbs. Highly recommended. MINE: The 2015 Bandol rosé is complex, yet ethereally light with great finesse. The wine finishes with lavender, thyme and more dried herbs de Provence. This wine comes from a long tradition of wine production in Bandol that started when the Greeks colonized the region more than 2,600 years ago. This blend is Grenache, Mourvèdre and Cinsault grapes, all hand-harvested. More than 60% of Bandol wine production is rosé and made dry. Pair with salmon steaks and goat cheese soufflé. OTHER: On March 3, 1929, the Cadiérenne cooperative was created by 37 winegrowers; today, La Cadiérenne is the largest producer of AP Bandol wines. A blend of Mourvèdre, Grenache and Cinsault, this wine offers ripe peach, pear, yellow apple and wild herbs with suggestions of exotic tropical fruit. It's bright, juicy, luxuriously smooth and round with a zesty edge to the finish. A beautiful wine. Pair with grilled seafood and summer salads. (Vintages panel, May 2017). - 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.
