The world-renowned Domaine Vérité is the fruit of the vision of Jess Jackson and Pierre Seillan. Founder of various wine estates, Jess Jackson wanted to create exceptional wines that rivaled the world's greatest bottlings. When Pierre Seillan went to California in 1997, he realised the potential of the region and embarked on an adventure alongside Jess Jackson in the magnificent Sonoma County area. A testament to the tradition of blending great Bordeaux wines, Domaine Vérité produces three distinctive wines that illustrate all the unique features of Californian micro-crus: La Muse, La Joie and Le Désir.
A particularly wet winter preceded a hot spring and early summer. The milder conditions in August and September were ideal for refining the ripeness of the grapes until the harvest. This vintage is seductive due to its concentration and precision as well as its richness.
The Caisse Vérité contains one bottle of each of the three estate wines: La Muse, La Joie and La Vérité. Each of these Californian wines is the result of a blend of micro-crus from a single vineyard in the greatest terroirs of Sonoma County. Following the tradition of the Grands Crus of Bordeaux, these three wines are presented as "California First Growths".
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (84%), Merlot (7%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (4%), La Joie 2019 reveals a complex and generous nose as well as a pure, well-balanced and unctuous palate.
A brilliant colour and a rich nose give way to a mouth whose liveliness and suppleness are the signature of this 2019 La Muse wine. Made from a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec, this California red wine exhibits a subtle marriage between freshness and complexity.
Cabernet Franc (83%), Merlot (8%), Malbec (5%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (4%) make up the blend of this 2019 Le Désir wine, whose charming and deep nose harmoniously blends with a structured, aromatic and persistent palate.
