It is a magnificent young wine, with good potential for an increase of 40 to 50 years. Pierre Seillan is rightly proud of what he has accomplished, and his first vintage of Vérité only dates back to 1998, but they are getting better and better.

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.
