Reviews and Ratings

A terrific Bordeaux from the strong 2012 vintage! This wine was aged French oak barrels for 12 months. Mocha and dark chocolate on the nose of this robust Bordeaux red wine from the Left Bank of the Gironde River. Fleshy black plums on the palate. Decant 1 hour. This full-bodied red wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot from the excellent 2012 vintage. Pair with a rare steak. MINE: There is mocha and dark chocolate on the nose of this robust Bordeaux red wine from the Left Bank of the Gironde River. This full-bodied red is a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot from the excellent 2012 vintage. Fleshy black plums are on the palate. Decant 1 hour. Pair with a rare steak. OTHER: I was intrigued to re-taste the 2009 Larose-Trintaudon having bestowed a glowing review almost five years ago. Now at seven years old I find no reason to change that view. It has a gorgeous bouquet of blackberry, bilberry and cedar, very well defined but perhaps needing another couple of years in bottle to forage for more secondary aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, excellent balance and weight, leading towards a competent, harmonious finish with abundant black fruit mixed with black pepper and tobacco. What a fantastic Cru Bourgeois, one that is going to give punters 15-20 years of pleasure judging by its "sedate" evolution. Score - 91 (Neal Martin, robertparker.com, Feb. 28, 2017). - 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.
