Natalie's Score: 93/100

I’m lovin it! Juicy, savoury and mouth-watering: loaded with blackberry and black cherry aromas. Good grip on the palate: decant for 2-3 hours. Could use some cellar time. Fantastic price! Produced by Cave Des Vignerons a Sablet. Try it with hearty meat dishes and robust conversation.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Hints of pepper and dried herb accompany mouth filling raspberry and plum flavours. Full bodied with approachable tannins and a satisfying length. A great winter warm up alongside a hearty beef stew. Enjoy now through 2015. Tasted Feb 2014.
Joel Noden rated this wine as 2/100

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.
