Reviews and Ratings

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Is it Spring yet??? I don't care anymore; I'm starting to drink my wines as though Spring has arrived! This is a great value and example of a classic Rhone white. Honeysuckle, lime, white peach and petrol-minerality on the nose followed by sage-y herbaceousness and an oily-rich texture on the palate. Turkey with Sage, Cranberries and Cornbread Dressing would rock this wine's world and vice versa- any volunteers?
Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

White fruit, honey with lots of citric character. Medium to full body, good acidity and a nice mineral expression to it. Wonderful cleansing finale bringing to mind zesty orange.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
