Heather Wall rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Herbaceous, citrus, appl, pear and some warm spices round out the nose. The palate warm and a little creamy with notes of toast, nuts, herbs de Provence, and lemon-lime. An odd but pleasant sipper. Perfect goat cheese salad wine. Drink now. Serve well chilled.
Tasted: March 2015
Jane Staples rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The typical Sauv Blanc nose showing mild asparagus, herbal/grassy notes and gooseberry. The palate shows gooseberry, vanilla and herbal notes. Medium-bodied with a long citrus/herbal finish.
The Wine Sisters reviewed this wine as follows:

Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes, this has aromas of under-ripe pear and peach, basil, raw fennel and mineral with an oily, rich palate of raw green olive, lime, orchard fruit and savoury herb. Refreshing and zippy, it pairs well with a myriad of foods including cheese fondue, seafood risotto and roast pork tenderloin.

Château De Cruzeau Blanc Meritage 2009, A.C., Pessac-Léognan, Bordeaux, France: Toasted almonds and hazelnut with some sun-kissed dry peach notes. Dry, mouth-watering and intriguing.

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.
