Description


Vérité is a highly coveted Sonoma wine and a record holder for its number of perfect scoring wines across three cuvées. Vigneron Pierre Seillan feels as much at home in Sonoma as in Saint-Émilion, with a 30 year pioneering record of bringing the idea of terroir and “Bordeaux style” blends to California. There are three Bordeaux-inspired cuvées made, with La Muse the Right Bank Pomerol style dominated by Merlot, La Joie a Médoc-like blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, and Le Desir a Saint-Émilion -oriented wine dominated by Cabernet Franc. Bearers of the Seillan standard, Nicolas and Christina Seillan will share with you the Vérité story and how the truth is in the glass!
