Brad rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

tight fruit and acidity on the tongue, this wine felt young and somewhat sharp to me, green apple and fresh citrus flavours
Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a very good quality/price wine made by a consistently good winery. You can taste the toast of the barrique, but not too much and it makes it a perfect companion for food, especially salmon. Nice and clean robe, pear (not ripe) aromas and pretty long en bouche (4-5 caudalies). An honest companion when you feel like having a great village appellation from Bourgogne but you don't want to pay the price tag to get it.
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

There is a big fruitiness on the nose with some tropical banana and coconut balanced out by a little tree fruit and some pleasant acidity. A warm, caramel note finishes things off nicely.
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intense apple, pear, butter and peach aromas with replays on the palate. Extra dry wine that is medium-bodied and very smooth, with a lengthy finish. Nice!! Tasted Sept/2012.

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.
