Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful pink color wrapped in a beautiful package - this wine is soft and elegant. The nose shows some floral, cherry, grapefruit, raspberry and minerality. The palate is dry with lots of citrus coming through - lemon zest, lime juice and juicy grapefruit. So delicious on its own or with a roasted cauliflower grilled cheese or a loaded veggie wrap.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chateau St. Martin makes some pretty historic wines. It has been passed down from daughter to daughter since the eighteenth century. Not only that, but their estate is also a cru classé since the inception of the Provence appellation, in 1955.
Pale pink/salmon colouration.
Pretty aromas of grapefruit, cherry, pomegranate, nectarine and whiteflower.
Super dry, bright, and refreshing. More refreshing lemon and grapefruit. Peachpit, raspberry, cherry, and with some lip-smacking minerality.
Put this with some cedar plank salmon or a light salad with berries and feta cheese.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
