Natalie's Score: 89/100

This is a bargain for Burgundy, which usually tends to be 2 to 3 times more expensive. Pinot Noir is indeed the heartbreak grape financially to make and to buy. This one offers pleasantly sour cherries and cranberry; lots of mouth-watering acidity for food. This well-priced red Burgundy from a lauded producer offers fresh beetroot, strawberry, cherry and raspberry character.

Food pairings: barbecued chicken and beets, mushroom burgers, beef bourguignon.

Patrick Ayotte rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clear ruby color. Spicy nose with aromas of flowers and red fruits. The fruity profile follows on the palate, not thin at all and lifted by the spices flavors that goes into a medium long finish with a nice grip. The acidity is just present enough to make the wine drinkable from now and the alcohol level of 12,5% makes it even better !
Produced by Nicolas Potel, a medium-bodied Pinot Noir with tart cherry and mouth-watering acidity. Smooth and balanced. The average age of the vines is 42 to 62 years old, planted at 248 metres above sea level with yields of 47 hectalitres per hectare. The vineyard enjoys a south-east exposure. Try it with pasta in cream sauce. - 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.
