Reviews and Ratings

This Pastis is from Provence. Henri Bardouin made a more complex Pastis 1990, layered with 65 different spices and herbs. The base spice is star anise with liquorice, mugwort, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, thyme, lemon verbena, St. John's wort, oregano, kidney vetch, angelica, Aframomum melegueta, commonly knows as 'grains of paradise' and a member of the ginger root family, sage, rosemary, borage, black and white pepper. Pastis was invented when the French government decided to outlaw the wormwood herb in absinthe. Pastis is normally diluted with water (or ice) and louches (turns milky white) when water is combined with the anethole and other oils in the Pastis. - Community Wine Reviews

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
