Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely and a great summer red to enjoy with any BBQ. Aromas of cherry, raspberry and strawberry, with hints of black pepper and a hint of oaky smoke. Medium-full bodied, smooth on the palate, with tons of ripe berry and again a hint of pepper on the finish. Enjoy with BBQ pork, steak, or grilled vegetables.
Château des Charmes St. David's Bench Vineyard 2017 Gamay Noir is produced from vines planted on the warmer side of ancient limestone slopes of the St. David's Bench Vineyard, Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region. Lots of mouth-watering acidity to match the ripe cherry, cracked black pepper spice and smoky flavours on this wine. This clone of Gamay (Droit) is unique to this winery and is unoaked. The clone is a natural mutation of the Gamay wine grape from the Beaujolais wine region and was discovered in the 1980s by winery founder, Paul Bosc Senior. - 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.
