Rebecca Meir-Liebman rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made by Antoine Vincent, a fifth-generation winemaker; barn yard notes, a medium bodied Beaujolais with soft tannins that are barely noticeable. Plums, mushrooms and earthy notes, with some red fruit and a slight acidity on the finish. Exceptionally food friendly - you can enjoy this wine with pink fish, poultry and veal dishes. Very appealing, easy drinking and fresh on the palate.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely aromas of red cherry and plum with warm spicy notes and leather. Medium bodied with some bright acidity and light tannins. On the palate the fruit and berry notes are fresh and bright with some peppery and leather flavoirs on the lengthy finish. Enjoy with turkey or roasted pork.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Delightful red plum and cinnamon on the nose. Fruit defines the palate on this medium bodied, smooth sipper. This would be a great choice for a party red to sip on its own or serve with poultry or veal. Tasted Nov 15, 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com

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.
