Verite, Sonoma County

Wijnmakers Jess Jackson (van Kendall-Jackson) en Pierre Seillan ontmoetten elkaar in de jaren '90. Seillan werkte bij verschillende châteaux in Bordeaux (waaronder Château Lassègue), maar voelde zich beperkt door de regelgeving in Bordeaux. Toen Jackson hem vraag of hij wijn wilde maken in Sonoma in Californië wist hij het meteen. Met zijn kennis van de druivensoorten uit Bordeaux ging hij aan de slag om drie Bordeaux-blends te maken, elk in hele kleine oplage. De drie wijnen Le Desir, La Muse en La Joie hebben veelvuldig al 100 punten behaald bij Wine Advocate. Wijnmaker Pierre Seillan draagt op dit moment de winery over aan zijn dochter Hélène.

Le Désir is Cabernet Franc-gedomineerd

La Muse is Merlot-gedomineerd.

La Joie is Cabernet Sauvignon-gedomineerd.

La Muse 2013 : Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) : 100/100

The 2013 La Muse, like all of the 2013s, comes about one-third from Alexander Valley vineyards, 40-plus percent from Chalk Hill, and the rest Knights Valley and Bennett Valley – all high-elevation hillside vineyards. A blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec at 14.3% alcohol, the wine is amazingly like a great vintage of Petrus, with mulberry, black cherry, licorice, truffle and unctuous, thick, juicy fruit all present in this full-bodied masterpiece. The tannins are still present. The wine has purity and savory presence and is remarkable. The finish goes on for well past a minute. This wine would probably benefit from 5-8 years of bottle age and last 40-50 years.

La Muse 2016 : Wine Advocate (Lisa Perrotti-Brown) : 100/100
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Muse is composed of 93% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Malbec. Wow—it comes strutting out of the glass with flamboyant crème de cassis, ripe plums and black cherries notes followed by nuances of aniseed, chocolate box, wild thyme, violets and chargrill plus a fragrant suggestion of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the densely packed perfumed black fruit layers are beautifully framed by perfectly ripe, finely grained tannins and fantastically knit freshness. It finishes long with the most incredible display of mineral sparks. 2,300 cases were produced.

La Muse 2018 : Wine Advocate (Lisa Perrotti-Brown) : 100/100
A blend of 90% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec, the 2018 La Muse was matured 16 months in 100% new French oak barrels. Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the nose delivers a powerful perfume of cherry pie, blackberry preserves and baked plums, followed by suggestions of red roses, cast-iron pan, underbrush and unsmoked cigars, plus wafts of licorice and oolong tea. Medium to full-bodied, the black fruit and exotic spice layers flow so gracefully over the palate, textured by plush tannins and lifted with seamless freshness, finishing epically long and achingly fragrant. The intensity and complexity of aromas and flavors—all waltzing in captivating harmony—cannot fail to make your head spin in the best possible way. Electrifying!
