Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

At a blind tasting this wine surprised me. A "new world" style Chateau Neuf de Pape with robust aromas of tobacco, burnt brown sugar, figs, dark berries, cinnamon and equally tantalizing flavours. Full body, well balanced and great on its own. .
From Vigneron Pierre Perrin, the 2012 vintage of the Châteauneuf du Pape is spectacular. This French red wine will last for decades in the 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.
