Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Yummy botrytis, bees wax, apricot, and spice. Repeat on palate. Lovely wine. Enjoy with crème brûlée. 93 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A gorgeous arrangement of apricot, white peach, white cranberries, apple, honey, nutmeg and nuttiness. A refreshing amount of acidity and a slight viscosity. Long length on a warm spice finish. Pair with fruit flan, salty cheeses, creme brulee or just make this dessert. Yum!
Tasted: March 2015
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Honeyed white tree fruit nose with a palate showing candied citrus fruit. Long candied citrus finish.
This premier cru (1er Cru) French dessert wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, as is typical for the Sauternes region of Bordeaux. Lovely apple blossom and marmalade aromas and flavours. - 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.

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.
