Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust southern French red wine blend from the Crozes Hermitage region of the Rhone Valley. Calends refers to the day of the new moon and symbolizes the passing of time. Calendes makes a nod to this and to the blending of three terroirs shaped by the Rhone an Isere rivers. The vines are planted in alluvialand granitic soils. Classic aromas of black cherry, smoke and spice. Perfect for grilled meats.

Food pairings: hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, juicy rare steak, barbecued ribs in sauce, hamburger.

Big and bold. Well structured with tightly-bound astringent tannins, medium-plus body. Blackberry, plum, cassis, graphite minerality. Pair with braised beef or a rare bbq steak. Tasted pre-release decanted 2h the 2015 vintage in Nov 2017. 92 points. #BespokeTastings

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.
