Californien, Sonoma County, Vérité, Le Desir 2013

DKK 3.299,00 DKK 2.899,00 inkl. moms

Californien, Sonoma County, Vérité, Le Desir 2013 represents 2,500 cases. This is the softest of the three wines in 2013, and this blend of 61% Cabernet Franc, 23% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec emerges with more than half of the cuvée coming from Hillsides in Alexander Valley, 37% from Chalk Hill and the rest tiny dollops from Bennett Valley and Knights Valley. Opaque purple, like its siblings, the wine is showing incredible floral, blueberry and espresso notes, exotic Asian spices, velvety texture, a supple, multilayered mouthfeel and incredible finish, with incense and licorice. This is magnificent young wine, with a good 40-50 years of upside potential. Pierre Seillan is justifiably proud of what he has achieved, and his first vintage of Vérité was only 1998, but they go from strength to strength.

Score: 99/100 Robert Parker

Vérité er fransk og betyder sandhed. Vinene har fået navnet fordi husets franske ejer, og winemaker Pierre Seillan lægger vægt på at vinene skal reflektere Sonomas unikke jordbund. Alle huset vine er inspireret af de største vine fra Bordeaux vine. La Muse af Pomerol – La Joie af Pauillac – Le Désir af Saint-Émilion.

Beliggende lige øst for byen Healdsburg i midten Sonoma County i Californien er vinene fra Vérité nye lysende stjerne på vin-himlen!

2013 vejret i Sonoma County var noget nær det perfekte.

Foråret var flot og der var en tilpas mængede fugt i jorden, der sammen med solen gjorde både skudsætning og blomstring helt perfekt.
Moderat men vedvarende sol og varme gennem sommeren. Da man nåede august kom der flere kølige nætter der var med til at give druerne en unik balance mellem syre og tannin. 2013 er endt med at være en af top 5 årgangene hos Vérité.
