Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted July 8th 2017 with good friends at our house for dinner. Colour medium ruby, medium plus legs. Aromas, raspberry, red plum, cherry, clove. Taste lots of fruit, dry, medium plus body, nice sweet tannin, good acidity, smooth and mouthwatering. Paired with grilled beef tenderloin, herbs de Provence and baby portobello mushroom sauce.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby in the glass and quite complex on the nose, this Vacqueyras from Southern Rhone is lip smackingly delicious. Flavors of dark fruit, leather, floral, dark chocolate and cracked pepper, well integrated tannins - a very well made wine from start to finish.

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.
