Reviews and Ratings

This Bordeaux Meritage offers black pepper and smoke on the nose followed by jubilantly juicy blackberries and black cherry. This is a Left Bank Bordeaux red wine blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. The 2010 vintage was a spectacular one for this region and this wine will age for several years. Pair this full-bodied Bordeaux with a juicy steak. MINE: From proprietor, Giraud-Bélivier, Chateau Le Caillou (2010) is a Bordeaux Meritage wine blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Lots of juicy blackberry and cherry fruit with a touch of savoury spice and smoke. The 2010 vintage was a spectacular one for this region and this wine will age for several years. Pair this full-bodied Bordeaux with a juicy steak. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: Dark garnet with dark fruit and molasses aromatics. Palate shows concentrated ripe berries (strawberries, raspberries, cassis), prunes, cedar, slight baking spice. Smooth texture with soft tannins. Tasted June 2017. OTHER: Pristine dark plums and blackberries with a sheen of stylishly applied oak spices. The palate has impressive richness and flavor amid smoothly polished tannins and a fresh, red-plum finish. Bright and balanced. Try from 2021. Score - 93 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, Feb. 2, 2018). - 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.
