Monique Sosa rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A meaty, smoky, yet still fruity French Bordeaux. The nose shows black plum, cassis, baking spice, cigar box, earthy underbrush, and a latex note. The palate is rich with high grippy tannins, high acidity, and a long plush finish . Enjoy pairing this wine with a savoury rack of lamb roast. Tasted August 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Heather Wall rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Okay, so this label contains the word "Margaux" but it also says "L'Expression." This is an okay Bordeaux for $33. I found it a little thin and dare I say a little green. There was plenty of good fruit on the nose such as black plum, cassis and cherry but I always came back to a lift of green pepper. On the secondary aromas I could detect toffee, graphite and eucalyptus. Palate had polishing tannins and balanced acidity. Full-bodied.Points for Bordeaux value. Decant.
Tasted: August 2016

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.
