Natalie's Review

Château Du Prieuré Des Mourgues Syrah Grenache Mourvèdre 2007, A.C., Saint-Chinian, Midi, France: Vintages Wine Panel: One of Saint-Chinian’s strongest producers, Château du Prieuré des Mourgues takes Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre and barrel ages them separately for 12 months. The final blend accentuates the fruit of the Syrah, the pretty cedar tones of the Grenache, the backbone of the Mourvèdre, plus the vanilla from the oak to create this finely made, food-friendly wine. It has all the generous fruit that was expected from the Midi in the 2007 vintage. My note: Simple and lip-smacking tasty! This full-bodied red offers notes of black raspberries and cherries with some pepper at the back. Judicious use of oak wraps the package nicely. Decant 2 hours. 985598 12.70% D 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 87/100. December 5, 2009  Full Review

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.
