Heather Wall rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This pale ruby medium-bodied red is a lesson in classic Old World style Burgundian Pinot Noir. Cherry pie, earthy, violets, pepper, herbs de Provence, toast, leather. The palate brings sour cherry, cranberry, smooth tannins and medium+ acidity. Classic Burgundy pairing would be cheeses and baguette, game meat and stews. Stuffed mushroom caps or mushroom risotto could work. Enjoy over the next 3 years.
Tasted: January 2015




Natalie's Review

Maison Roche De Bellene Cuvée Réserve Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2012, Burgundy A.C., France: This Nicolas Potel wine is medium-bodied, and smooth: Classic Old World pinot noir that offers aromas and flavours of tart cherries, earth and some herbal notes. Good acidity for food. Awesome price for Burgundy, especially for the quality designation of AC. Finishes with lovely spice and coffee notes. Pair with smoke salmon. Drink: 2014-2017. 299859 13% XD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 88/100. August 8, 2015 Best Beef Wine  Full Review

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.
