It is most famous for its three Bordeaux-styled blends: La Muse, La Joie, and Le Désir, which have all received 100-point scores from American wine critic Robert Parker over several vintages. Winemaker Pierre Seillan got his start working with Bordeaux varieties at his family's estate in Armagnac. Before moving to the United States, he worked at Château de Targé in Saumur-Champigny in the Loire Valley, and at several châteaux in Bordeaux. Upon meeting California wine pioneer Jess Jackson in the 1990s, Seillan was convinced to move to Sonoma to make Bordeaux blend wines. Vérité sources fruit from the Alexander Valley, Bennett Valley, Knights Valley and Chalk Hill AVAs in Sonoma County. This range of sites provides more than 40 different types of soil, a range of altitudes and several different mesoclimates. Each vineyard block is vinified separately before a final blend for each wine is created. In a slight departure from the standard approach, Seillan made a 100 percent Tannat from Alexander Mountain Estate (which sits on the western Mayacamas Mountains overlooking the Alexander Valley) in 2010, although it appears this wine was a one-off. The three Vérité blends are dominated by a different Bordeaux variety. La Muse is Merlot-based, La Joie is Cabernet Sauvignon-based, and Le Désir is primarily Cabernet Franc. Due to the wines' success with the press, they are only available through a mailing list. The wines are still made by Seillan, although he is now joined by his daughter, Hélène, who has taken over assistant winemaker duties. Jess Jackson died in 2011.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-11T10:48:59-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-07T10:02:34-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_United States","NK0601","Other_Wine","Producer_Verite","Region_Sonoma Coast","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":99999,"price_min":99999,"price_max":99999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42668685099146,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2019 | Verite | Le Desir","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":99999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/1_919b6249-247a-4c6a-b358-c5e8b601edd8.png?v=1673104057"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/1_919b6249-247a-4c6a-b358-c5e8b601edd8.png?v=1673104057","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2019 | Verite | Le Desir at CaskCartel.com","id":23925515255946,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.385,"height":1530,"width":589,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/1_919b6249-247a-4c6a-b358-c5e8b601edd8.png?v=1673104057"},"aspect_ratio":0.385,"height":1530,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/1_919b6249-247a-4c6a-b358-c5e8b601edd8.png?v=1673104057","width":589}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2019 | Verite | La Desir\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eComplex, layered flavors, soaring aromatics and very detailed expression.
