Tasting Note
From a 37-acre vineyard, this cuvee is made from 80-year-old vines (mostly Grenache and some Syrah), and everything is aged in cement tanks. The result is a naked expression of fruit. This wine possesses gorgeously pure blackberry and black cherry notes intermixed with poultry, charcoal, lard, and camphor. The complex aromatics are followed by a ripe, pure wine bursting with fruit. It also exhibits an impressive structure, admirable richness and texture, and a full-bodied finish that lasts for 25-30 seconds. Score - 90. (Robert Parker Jr., www.erobertparker.com, Oct. 2009)

Natalie's Review

Domaine De La Colline Saint-Jean Vieilles Vignes, Alazard Père Et Fils Grenache Syrah 2007, A.C., Vacqueyras, Rhône, France: Vibrant, fleshy black cherries on the nose followed by a deeper, richer black cherry liqueur in the mouth. Rich, full-bodied and glorious. This wine comes from a 37-acre vineyard of 80-year-old Grenache and Syrah vines. It’s aged in cement tanks to preserve fruit freshness. Seduction in a glass.

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.
