Reviews and Ratings

Unfiltered AP. "Balanced, full-bodied and savoury delicious. Although Grenache leads in the blend at 80%, there's also 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre grapes in this cuvee. Winemaker Stéphane Vedeau lovingly brings forward luscious fruit flavours that Syrah adds to this red wine blend from the Rhone Valley. Robust and smooth yet it has terrific concentration and complexity. Savoury with satisfying aromas and flavours of black cherry and cedar forest floor. Attractive notes of black raspberry, violets and wild brush on the mid-palate. A powerful red wine from the Rhone Valley, with seriously rich and fleshy ripe brandied cherry aromas and flavours. Polished tannins with anise and blackberry on the finish. Decant for 1 hour for maximum pleasure. Pair with rare cuts of meat. MINE: La Ferme Du Mont Le Ponnant is a 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah medium-plus bodied red wine blend is medium to full-bodied Côtes Du Rhône-Villages from the Rhône wine region. The wine is unfiltered giving it full expression of the crushed raspberry, savoury herb and spice flavours on the palate wrapped up in a balanced and zesty acidity. Tannins are fine and smooth and this wine is very easy to drink and enjoy. OTHER: : There is good depth and interest to the aromas here, with damson alongside some subtle resin notes. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, the lush, fleshy plum fruit continues into the long finish. There is ample balancing acidity and tight, fine tannin on the finish. It's a wine that feels more gently steered to its final state rather than micro-managed; it's not overly polished and retains some texture and detail. Drinking Window: 2017-2020. Score - 92 (decanter.com, Oct. 8, 2017). - 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.
