Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Always a killer white wine for patio sipping. The 2015 features unripe pear, stone fruit, white flowers, kumquat, and lime soda. Gorgeously delineated. 90 Points.




Natalie's Review

Michele Chiarlo Le Marne Gavi 2015, Piedmont D.O.C.G., Italy: White peach and Asian pear on the nose of this vibrant Italian white wine. The Italian wine region of Gavi is in the southeast part of Piedmont and features Cortese grape vines planted on hillsides in calcareous-marl soil that is the reason for the name “Le Marne.” This white wine is made 100% Cortese grapes. Finishes with notes of green apple, anise and lime. Pair with creamy cheeses or grilled prawns. White floral nose then lime acidity on the palate to wake up your taste buds in this vibrant Italian white wine. Medium-bodied, clean and crisp. Also enjoy as an aperitif. A vibrant citrus finish. Pair with halibut or sole. Drink: 2016-2018. 228528 12.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 90/100. January 27, 2017 Best Value White Wine. Scrumptious Seafood 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.
