Natalie's Score: 88/100

The winemaker for this robust Bordeaux red wine is Odile and Thierry Bazin. Lots of toasty oak on the nose and a firm tannic grip on the palate. Rustic, cedary, tannic and full-bodied, this Bordeaux red wine is tasty but could use 1-2 years in the cellar and then 1-2 hours of decanting to smooth it out. Pair with a pepper steak.

Food pairings: pepper steak, slow-braised blade roast, rouladen.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very ripe wine here contrary to the vintage in Bordeaus. Black plums and spicy oak are in balance. Full ripe tannins make this a more masculin interpretation of Bordeaux. Enjoy with rare lamb chops.
Château La Roche Bazin 2014 is a well-priced, full-bodied and rustic red from the Côtes De Bordeaux - Blaye. Tannins are firm. Decant two hours prior to pouring with a game stew or hold for another couple of years and try it again. Has great potential. - 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.
