Vintages Wine Panel: Château Haut-Monplaisir is in the commune of Lacapelle-Cabanac, west of Cahors. Wines from Cahors are known as ‘black wines’ as they are among the darkest coloured reds made. The vineyards here were first planted by the Romans, and popes, tsars and emperors became fans over time. This inky Malbec displays aromas of cherry, herbs, fig, and peat. In the vanguard of quality for southwestern wines. My note: A truly black colored wine..a good companion for a dastardly plot. Tannic with aromas of black fruit, smoke and oak.

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.
