Reviews and Ratings

The orris were rounded, dry stone shelters where shepherds and farmers would take refuge from a surprise storm. The master of the house? Joep Graler, a flat-country man who settled in 2003 on the highlands (600 m) to practice organic viticulture. An assembly of Carignan, Syrah and Grenache, the Lhusanes has a deep colour and a nose of jammy black fruits, complemented by a touch of licorice and violet. In the same vein, the attack is all ripe fruit. Well supported by silky tannins, the palate is seduced by the wine's structure and by the freshness that gives life to this bottle. Score - 2 Stars out of 3 (Remarkable wine) Source: Guide Hachette, 2009

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.
