Reviews and Ratings

This is the second wine of Château Siaurac. Château Siaurac was one of six châteaux recently honoured at Bordeaux’s 2012 Best of Wine Tourism Awards. The wine is 100% Merlot. Unlike many youthful Bordeaux, which can seem mean and astringent, this one throws out the welcome mat from the get-go. Bright red fruits, from stewed cherry to cassis, dominate on the nose, and they’re bolstered by undertones of earth, mineral, and herbs. The heartfelt howdy continues on the palate as well, with black plum coming to the fore, a mouthfeel that could easily be called plush, and a finish that is, if a little hasty, at least consistent to the end. The back label suggests that this wine should be good up to five years from harvest, but it’s surely ready to drink now. Source: Ron Bechtol, San Antonio Current

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.
