Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Sandwiched between Grave and Entre Deux Mers, Cadillac Cotes de Bordeaux offers fantastic easy-drinking wine and Chateau Baracan 2015 is a perfect example. Aromas of raspberry, red plum, tobacco leaf, black pepper, leather, spice and oak will fill your glass. Crafted from 40% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the Chateau Baracan exposes a medium body and great balance, and a long and fruity finish. Flavors of red plum, cherry, black pepper, leather, vanilla and oak. Enjoy!
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Look for aromas of fresh cherry and raspberry, vanilla and oak spice, and a mild hint of violet. Medium body with moderate tannins and bright acidity. Accessible and, for a red of this calibre, surprisingly easy-drinking. Four grape blend, dominated by equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot at 40%, rounded out by Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot at 15% and 5% respectively. Good value. Try with beef stew or pork tenderloin.
From the Côtes De Bordeaux - Cadillac, Château Baracan 2015 is great value under $20. This is a dry and smoky Bordeaux blend of 40% Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot with dark plum, blackberry, spicy and smoky flavours on the palate. Tannins are firm. Would benefit from two more years in cellar. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
