It is becoming increasingly hard to find wines like this which is a shame because there is such a sense of history and nostalgia on the nose and palate which reminds us that they got this wine right over one hundred and fifty years ago. Nothing has changed - the vineyards are the same, the techniques identical, too. Fashions come and go, but class remains. Drink 2012-2018. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com

  Best Books of the Year

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.
