A big-boned French red wine with a firm tannic grip so it needs cellar time but this baby is hugely delicious! When you (finally) open it, decant 2 hours and pair with a rare steak. Highly recommended.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A fragrant nose showing red fruit and fresh earth. The palate show ripe cassis, earth and vanilla. Beautiful harmonious mouthfeel and a velvety, ripe cassis finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A pretty nose of ripe berries, plum, cherry compote and floral. Polishing tannins with a good finish. Makes a great everyday Bordeaux at the $20 price point. Suggest decanting and pair with red meats - cooked medium-rare.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with nice dark berry notes, a fine entry level Bordeaux that delivers on taste, quality, and best yet, it's available at an entry level price. Enjoy with food. 88 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Produced by Alix de Pitray Comtesse de Boigne, Proprietor. The back label reads: Each bottle contains 600 years of history written by the same family. - 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.
