Reviews and Ratings

Typical of Sancerre from the Loire, Joseph Mellot La Chatellenie (2016) is fresh-cut hay, green apple and white stonefruit with a kiss of flint. This French white wine is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes using low fermentation temperatures in stainless steel. The wine is also matured on its lees for added structure and freshness. - 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.
