Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Smoky, fruity and floral! Aromas of blackberry, plum, violets, cedar smoke and a hint of leather. Full bodied with firm tannins, fruit is fresh and ripe on the palate, with more floral and smoky hints on the finish. Acidity is bright and balances the bold flavours and tannin. Decant at least an hour and enjoy with prime rib.
Château Le Puy Emilien 2015 is a full-bodied, plushy 85% Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Carmenère red wine blend from the Côtes De Bordeaux - Francs, Bordeaux wine region. Opulent with dark plums compote, raspberry, blackberry, savoury and baking spice flavours on the palate. Everything you could as for in a wine. Balanced and beautiful. Drink or hold. I say drink now, but this wine will be a mature, elegant beauty of itself in 10 to 15 years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
