Natalie's Score: 93/100

Produced by Maurice Et Nicolas Boiron, a spicy, lip-smacking and mouth filling Châteauneuf-du-Pape with a blend of up to 13 grapes, most of them red-wine grapes but some can be white. The dominant grape is this blend is Grenache, then Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Syrah with other lesser-known red grapes such as Terret Noir, Muscardin and Counoise as well as white grapes like Clairette Blanche, Bourboulenc, Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Roussanne and Picpoul permitted in the blend, though white grapes are increasingly rarely used, given the preference for the heft and depth that red grapes offer.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape food pairings: roast pork, roast leg of lamb, duck, pepper steak.

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.

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.
