Heiner Lobenberg über:
Le Désir 2013


Lobenberg: Le Désir, also der Wunsch, ist der charmanteste unter den drei Top-Weinen bei Verité. Ein Blend mit hohem Cabernet-Franc-Anteil. Götterstoff, gemacht für die ganz große Strecke. 99/100


Parker über: Le Désir

-- Parker: 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. 99/100


Galloni über: Le Désir

-- Galloni: Tasted from tank just prior to bottling, the 2013 La Joie is dense, powerful and rich, with notable depth. Still remarkable embryonic the 2013 remains deep, fruit driven and backward. This is a wine for the long haul. Crème de cassis, blackberry jam, spice, menthol, game, licorice and smoke flow through to the powerful, incisive finish. This is a strong showing. 93-96/100

Pierre Seillan ist ein weiterer Winzer, den es aus Frankreich nach Kalifornien verschlagen hat. Ursprünglich aus Saint-Emilion begann die Geschichte von Verite eher als Projekt denn als in Stein gemeißeltes Ziel.
