Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Fresh and fruity, this easygoing Beaujolais shows off both the charms of the region and the Gamay grape. The nose is straight-forward and pleasing with aromas of bright cherry, wild berry, violets and a hint of banana. It’s dry, light bodied and soft textured (i.e., quaffable) with fresh red berry fruit flavours and a hint of cracked pepper leading to a surprisingly long, crisp finish. Give it a slight chill to bring out the fresh fruit character. My note: A light, carefree wine with classic notes of field strawberries and raspberries. Not furry tannins here: smooth as silk and light as air. Don’t think, just drink.

Gamay food pairings: Gruyère-cheese soufflé, Hawaiian pizza.

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.
