Reviews and Ratings

Full-bodied with dark spice and black fruit. Complex, layered and delicious. A finish longer than a sunset. Pair with happiness and prime rib (same thing). MINE: Château Des Roques (XXXX) is ruby-red in the glass. Lovely floral and raspberry notes with sweet spice on the nose and rich raspberry liqueur, white pepper, smoke and dried herbs on the palate. Nice, lingering finish with soft tannins. This is a hallmark red from Vacqueyras in the Rhône wine region. OTHER: (aged for nine months in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used barrels): Ruby-red. Intense, sharply focused red currant, cherry pit and floral scents are complemented by deeper suggestions of licorice and musky rhubarb. Stains the palate with black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that become weightier and sweeter with air. Smoothly combines power and vivacity, finishing chewy and long; fine-grained tannins add grip. Drinking window: 2018-2023. Score - 91 (Josh Raynolds, vinous.com, April 2016). - 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.
