Reviews and Ratings

Le Gravillas Sablet 2016 is an intense and robust Côtes Du Rhône-Villages and just great value under $16. A blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes, the wine is fragrant with wild strawberry, dried herb and savoury spice aromas on the nose So delicious with ripe red berry, strawberry, cherry, savoury herb and earthy spice flavours on the plate. Steak wine for sure! This vintage was awarded Gold at the 2016 Concours des Vins à Orange (again). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
