Natalie's Score: 93/100

This blockbuster southern French red wine is at an incredibly great price. The 2016 vintage of the Chapoutier Rasteau is a blend of 60% Grenache and 20% each of Mourvèdre and Syrah grapes. The wine was matured in concrete tanks so the purity of the fruit shows through. Aromas of juicy blackberries and plums. Pair with grilled meats.

Rasteau food pairings: pork roast, veal scallopini, cheesy 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.
