Es ist ein großartiger junger Wein mit einem guten Wachstumspotenzial von 40 bis 50 Jahren. Pierre Seillan ist zu Recht stolz auf das, was er erreicht hat, und sein erster Jahrgang von Vérité stammt erst aus dem Jahr 1998, aber sie werden immer besser.

Bewertung 99/100
Trinkfenster 2015-2065

The 2013 Le Desir 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.

At Domaine Vérité, the wines are the product of an intimate alliance of European know-how and fruits from the New World. Characterized by the combination of the unique elements of the small plots of vineyard from which it comes, each wine is fully revealed in the meticulously arranged marriage of grape varieties, climate, soils and wine-making techniques. Vérité is the result of a meeting and collaboration between a visionary family, the Jackson family, and the famous winemaker Pierre Seillan. Since its creation in 1998, Pierre Seillan has identified more than 40 micro-crus on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, in Sonoma. These micro-crus are in fact small plots at the heart of plots, which reflect an incredible diversity of soils. Handcrafted with great care, for very low yields, they produce wines with character and exceptional quality. For each vintage, Vérité offers 3 blends, inspired by Bordeaux wines: La Muse (dominated by Merlot), La Joie (dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon), and Désir (dominated by Cabernet Franc). These three wines have remarkable aging potential, but can be appreciated from the first years thanks to their voluptuousness and perfect balance. The wines of Truth have obtained the 100 Parker points 13 times.

Desire is a blend dominated by Cabernet Franc, alongside Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot; it expresses a beautiful concentration, exotic spices and an opulent, voluptuous texture.
