Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Although considerably more money where I live in Nova Scotia, I found this Bordeaux to be still a very good value. Medium bodied with aromas and flavors of black currants, spice and cedar, this Merlot dominant Bordeaux would go great with pork, lamb or duck.
Château Hauchat again delivers a quality value-priced wine. Deeply coloured, with aromas of cherries, vanilla, spice, plums and mineral. The palate is dry and mirrors the nose beautifully. A lovely long finish. A well-structured wine that promises to reward short-term cellaring (3-4 years) but will also perform well tonight. Full-bodied & Smooth. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2012

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
