Reviews and Ratings

Ronald Georges du blogue Millésime rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Les vignes de grenache, de syrah et de marselan (un croisement créé en 1961 entre le cabernet-sauvignon et le grenache noir qu’on trouve surtout en Côte du Rhône et en Languedoc) proviennent des Costières de Nîmes, du Minervois et de Corbières. Rubis foncé violacé, on sent les notes chimiques, les fruits rouges et les fruits noirs. Et en effet, ces mêmes fruits (surtout le cassis et la prune) reviennent en bouche, accompagnés de café et de vanille. Moyennement acide et souple, ce vin contient tout de même une certaine dose de sucre, qui peut en lasser certains, mais soyons indulgents vu son prix compétitif.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
