Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A beautiful Beajolais from the sub-region of Morgon. Excellent vintage. Bright floral and grapey goodness with a nice spice accent to best most Beaujolais. When tasted it offered berries and pepper spice. Lovely and extremely food diverse.
Laurent Gauthier Cras Vielles Vignes 2015 is mouth-watering Gamay from the Morgon in the Beaujolais wine region. This is a dry, racy and medium-bodied Gamay that would be a perfect math to grilled tuna steaks or salmon. Five generations of the family have owned and operated this winery. Drink now and for the next five years. - 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.
