Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Les Amouriers is a blend of 55% Grenache, 39% Syrah and 6% Mourvèdre. Deep ruby red in colour, the nose shows great inensity with dark fruit, plum, dried fig, cacao, baking spice, forest floor, and leather. A repeat on the palate. Very complex, rich and balanced. An impressive and bold Vacqueyras that I'd highly recommend buying by the case and enjoying over the next 3-5 years. Tasted January 2016. 91+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
The 2012 vintage of the Vacqueyras Cuvee Signature is a robust French red wine from the southern region o the Rhône Valley. This is a blend of 55% Grenache, 39% Syrah and the remainder Mourvèdre grapes. - 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.
