Reviews and Ratings

Domaine Lerys' Pur Schistes Fitou 2015 is produced mostly from Carignan and Grenache noir wine grapes with some Syrah and Mourvèdre added. Wine grapes are grown on steep slopes with schist soils, and the reason for the wine's name "Pur Schistes". The average age of the vines is between 50 and 60 years old with some vines more than 100 years old. Deep red in the glass, the nose is pronounced with ripe dark fruit, caramel, savoury spice, minty herbs and smoky aromas. On the palate, the wine is dry, full-bodied with more dark fruit, savoury spice, black olive, smoky vanilla and caramel flavours from oak ageing. Tannins are soft and rounded. Drink now and for the next three years. Pair with coq au vin. This vintage was awarded 3 Stars out of 3 in the Guide Hachette. - 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.
