Reviews and Ratings

Purple plum liqueur and blueberry jam on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, relatively smooth southern French red wine. Finishes with more sweet berry fruit. Pair with sweet ribs. MINE: Cave De Roquebrun's La Grange Des Combes Saint-Chinian-Roquebrun (2015) is a 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre red wine blend with wine grapes grown in schistous soils of the Midi wine region. The wine is very fresh as whole-bunch grapes were fermented and aged in stainless steel tank. Drink now and for then next three years. OTHER: Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: There is so much yum going on in this wine. Blackberry compote, smoke, iron, plum skin, iodine, warm spice and toasted anise seed. At $19 this is a steal. 92 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com). OTHER: Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Wonderful med-full bodied GSM from southern France. Rich, supple and full of deep dark fruit flavours with smoke, liquorice and lavender. Decent tannins provide great structure to enhance the smooth finish. Paired with BBQ ribs. Tasted August 2017. OTHER: John Masur WSET 3, Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Comprised of 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache, and 20% Mourvèdre grapes, this wine is smooth and rich with black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry flavours. Hints of herbs, milk chocolate and violets round out the experience. This is a dry wine with moderate tannins that can be paired with most tomato based pasta dishes. OTHER: Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows: Tasted Feb. 27, 2018, Colour ruby red, legs thick. Aromas and flavours of, red berry jam, red plum, black olive, dried herbs, black tea. Taste dry, medium plus body, mouthwatering minus, smooth grained tannin, heat and dried fruit on the finish. I feel people with either love or hate this wine. I like the taste in spite of the peppery hot finish. This wine would pair well with BBQ ribs. I drank it with a dark ground chicken tomato based pasta. OTHER: 50% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre. At the more elegant end of the spectrum, with a bright blueberry nose unveiling a distinguished palate of coffee liqueur and cassis. Score - 90 (Decanter World Wine Awards, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
