Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Excellent value and so flavourful. Aromas of plum, blueberry and blackberry, with spice and woodsmoke. Full bodied with smooth tannins, ripe, plush fruit flavours, and oak, spice and a mineral hint on the finish. Enjoy with braised beef.
Produced by M. Chapoutier, a stellar Syrah and Grenache red wine blend at a great price point under $17. Love this organic/biodynamic red blend. Belleruche 2017 is rich with ripe and juicy dark fruit flavors finishing zesty with lingering mineral and citrus zest flavours on the palate. Tannins are rounded. - 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.

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.
