Natalie's Score: 89/100

A lovely Beaujolais with juicy and generous aromas of fleshy cherries and field raspberries. Just enough tart cranberry bite to make this wine refreshing and food friendly. Terrific balance, smooth texture and medium-bodied weight in this delightful red wine. Try it with planked salmon.

Gamay (Beaujolais) food pairings: seafood.

This is a really great quaffer: medium-bodied and lips-smacking delicious. Nice minerality here with a refreshing lift on the finish. Some mixed spices on the finish add to this red wine's allure. - 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.
