From Bill for birthday
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

A swanky label smacking of old world grape, one of France’s most renowned wine regions, a nine year old vintage, the designation of ‘grand cru’ and a price point around $50 sets the bar high. The nose was spot on, filled with spring violets and dark cherry. The taste, equally thrilling; ripe, red, berry driven, toned by earth and leather, the fall of the leg thick and rich as it clung to the glass. Structure and tone, brimming with fruit… and then… nothing.

The taste was wiped from my mouth like it had never been there. The only evidence that remained was the taint of purple on my lips and gums. Surly this can’t be right?! But no amount of sipping, savoring and swilling changed this effect.

Personally, I like a wine that hangs out a while longer. Like the company of a good friend, a good wine shouldn’t be gone too soon. Still, an interesting pick

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.

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.
