Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From my favourite producer in the Roussillon, this wine is so layered and complex, featuring crushed rock, black plum skin, cherry pit, cassis, lavender, white pepper, grape must, mineral, and black olive brine. Loads of tactile sensation, this wine never gets boring. 92 Points. Drink now through 2024. (ottawawinejournal.com)

John Szabo, MS

Inky-deep purple red appearance. Explosive and concentrated nose here, with ultra ripe but not jammy black and blue fruit, cold smoke, blueberry pie, wet schist, and on and on. The palate reveals substantial structure and depth, with remarkable density and complexity. This is easily the equal of many Chateaubriand-du-Papes at half the price. terrific value. Tasted January 2013. Value Rating: **




Natalie's Review

Côtes Du Roussillon-Villages 2010, Midi A.C., France: A full-bodied, chalky-dry red wine blend of Syrah and Grenache grapes, with Grenache adding extra plushness to the wine. Loads of blackberry, cassis, and other dark fruits and just enough toasty oak. Beautifully textured wine with a vivacious palate. This big red is a flagship wine for the Roussillon region. Good cellar candidate. Drink: 2014-2020. 142802 15% XD 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 90/100. March 1, 2014 Heavenly Hamburger Wine  Full Review

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.
