Lovely aromas and flavours of black briars, warm baking spice, herbs, graphite, plum skin, hung game, and camphor. 92 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

John Szabo, MS

Rather tightly wound aromatically at the moment, Amadieu's '13 Gigondas is a wine of substantial depth and class, balance and complexity. It will likely take another 2-3 years or so to unfurl, but should emerge as a marvellously savoury, balanced, spice-inflected, polished but firm example. Traditional styling (large, old foudres?), adds to the overall appeal. Great length, and great value. Tasted May 2016. Value Rating: ***

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.
