VÉRITÉ, SINGLE VINEYARD COLLECTION
SONOMA, CALIFORNIA 2019
Vérité was born from a challenge when Jess Jackson (of Jackson Family Wine fame) challenged winemaker Pierre Seillan to make a North American wine 'as good as Château Pétrus.' Since the inaugural vintage in 1998, Vérité has seen unprecedented success brought to its Sonoma doorstep. Pierre Seillan has utilized his five decades of winemaking experience from his upbringing in Gascony, France to wine-making successes in the Loire Valley and Bordeaux. Pierre Seillan’s visionary style of blending micro-crus from across more than fifty sites in four Sonoma appellations (Bennett Valley, Alexander Valley, Chalk Hill and Knights Valley) had led to more 100 point scores than any other Sonoma winery. The three distinct cuvées are often compared to their French peers – La Muse’s supple, elegant Merlot compared to Château Pétrus, La Joie’s power and regally elegant Cabernet Sauvignon to Château Mouton Rothschild and La Désir’s flamboyant aromatically complex Cabernet Franc to Château Cheval Blanc.
Did the mission succeed? In a tasting for the 2013 vintage Robert Parker himself said of the La Muse bottling “The wine is amazingly like a great vintage of Pétrus with mulberry, black cherry, liquorice, truffle and unctuous, thick juicy fruit all present in this full-bodied masterpiece.”
Consistently perfect or near-perfect scores have flowed throughout the partnership proving Old World experience and New World terroir can reveal the truth.
Today’s offer is a rare opportunity to acquire one bottle of all three iconic wines, packaged together for the stellar 2019 vintage. Quantities are limited, so act fast!
2019 La Muse: 99 Pts Wine Advocate
“The 2019 La Muse is a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cab Franc and 5% Malbec. Deep ruby-purple, it explodes with cassis, violets and aniseed, with wafts of thyme, tobacco and iron, offering new nuances with each return to the glass. The full-bodied palate is powerful and refined, with loads of rounded tannins, focused freshness and ethereal character. It's exceptionally expressive and structured and should be very long lived in the cellar.” – Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
2019 La Joie: 100 Pts Lisa Perrotti-Brown The Wine Independent, 99 Pts Wine Advocate
“The 2019 La Joie is an elegant expression that offers power, freshness and expressive, floral character. A blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, it has a deep ruby color and opens slowly from black cherries and blueberries to accents of violets, ground coffee and licorice. The full-bodied palate has generous, grainy tannins, detailed, perfumed flavors and bright acidity, finishing with an alluring iron character. 2,500 cases were made.” – Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
2019 Le Désir: 100 Pts Wine Advocate, 100 Pts James Suckling
“The 2019 Le Désir is an exceptional blend of 83% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, offering complex, layered flavors, soaring aromatics and very detailed expression. Deep ruby-purple in color, its aromas unfold slowly and offer new nuances with each return to the glass: Morello cherries, warm chocolate, dried thyme, desiccated roses and dried herbs. The full-bodied palate offers concentrated, floral fruits, pixelated tannins, bursts of fresh acidity and a very long finish with layer after layer of detailed flavor. 2,500 cases were made.” – Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate
"Sublime cabernet franc aromas of currants, flowers and citrus. Full-bodied with incredible purity of fruit and length. You don’t feel the tannins, but they are there. The acidity gives you dynamic reality and perfect length. A truly great wine. 83% cabernet franc, 8% merlot, 5% malbec, and 4% cabernet sauvignon. Best from 2026." - James Suckling
