Reviews and Ratings

Damien Dupuy moved onto the family farm in 2010, a nice 66 ha property and birthplace of reliable value wines. This wine was elected a jury favourite for the vintages 2008 and 2003, and the 2010 is in the same vein. This blend dominated by Merlot received a controlled oak stay (twelve months in vats and six months in barrel) that highlights its power, richness and complexity. Lightly wooded, measured and delicate, with vanilla, chocolate and toast, allowed to express on the nose and palate a sweet fruit reminiscent of ripe cassis and sweet jam. Robust, the palate is based on a frame of fine, silky tannins and lingers on the fruity finish. A wine that is at once attractive and appealing, and one that will benefit from a further two to three years of aging. Score: 2 (out of 3). Source: Guide Hachette, 2013

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.
