Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby colour and quite expressive. Enveloping aromas of soft light red plum, strawberry cream, sweet and zesty spices chocolate covered cherries and a touch of earthy fresh forest on the palate bright red fruits, underripe raspberry, tart cherry, tobacco and cigar box. Also an earthy dried herbal note of bay leaves, sage and dried rosemary with elements of freshly lit cigar specimens on the tongue. High acidity and tannins with a long finish. However the depth of this is lighter. Expressive. Pair with smoked ribs, applewood smoked cheddar, and lamb. 90 points - tasted November 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely Southern Rhone red from Fontaine du Clos that is medium bodied and fruity. A blend of Grenache and Shiraz with aromas and flavors of cherries, plum, licorice, mineral with a hint of gaminess and earth on the mid palate. Wonderfully complex with a lengthy finish. Tasted November 2017.
Fontaine De Clos Confidences (2014) is a lusty Côtes Du Rhône red with ripe cherries, plums and garrigue herbs finish. Drink now and for the next three years. - 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.
