Natalie's Score: 90/100

This full-bodied southern French red wine from the Rhone Valley is cedary with wild black fruit, cassis and blackcurrant. Excellent for the price. Robust and relatively smooth, though decant for 1 hour. Savoury and mouth-watering. Perfect for hearty meat dishes like prime rib.

Food pairings: slow-roasted beef, leg of lamb.

Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A very pleasant Cotes du Rhone - fruity cherry and black berry notes off the top, mingled with a savoury herbaciousness; medium to full-bodied with nice acidity and firm tannins. This wine can be enjoyed with quite a variety of dishes.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lifted nose of Grenache, along with herbs and wildness from the Cinsault and Carignan. Candied berries on the palate.
Produced by Des Armoiries Élevé En Fût De Chêne, this is a blend of Grenache, Syrah, Carignan, Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. Lots of toasty oak, smoke and spice. - 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.
