Reviews and Ratings

Pam Hatton rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

Twenty years in the bottle and it is still brimming with fresh red and black fruit. Dark and inky to the rim, it hides its age. Classic cassis, raspberries, plum, cedar, vanilla and spice are released in a swirl. Velvety and full bodied, the tanins are fine and give the wine elegant structure. The palate reveals fresh cassis, blackberry, black cherry and plum with spices of pepper and a bit of clove. The more swirls the more tertiary earthy and leather notes with a touch of green pepper emerge. The acidity is balanced and the long luxurious finish adds to the complexity of this fine Bordeaux.

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.
