Natalie's Score: 92/100

The robust red wine is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre grapes with no Carignan, so it is a dried style than Gerard Bertrand's Minervois red wine blend. This one is layered and luscious with deep, rich, dark fruit flavours and a satisfying full-bodied weight.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Carkner rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Enjoyed in November 2017 this wine is in its prime. Open it a good half hour before digging in or decant to awake this 2011 beauty. Stony mineral and dried cranberry predominate the nose with some florals and dusty herbs alongside. Very well balanced on the palate with earthy, dried fruit, tart cherries, well integrated tannins, and vibrant concentration. Still very fruity and may go a few years yet. Crispy-skinned duck confit with a tart compote would do nicely here or country style pate with fine mustards and cornichons.

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.
