Description
Vérité Le Désir is a Cabernet Franc-based blend that exudes high-toned aromatics, an iron graphite core and a pronounced minerality. Inspired by the iconic wines of Saint-Émilion, Bordeaux, Le Désir redefines Cabernet Franc from the New World, with layers of concentrated fruit, exotic spice and a plush suede texture. Vigneron Pierre Seillan tends to a mosaic of more than fifty micro-crus to produce the wine’s complex signature. The compelling characteristics of the Cabernet Franc in the 2018 Le Désir are expressed on the nose and palate with flavors of crunchy cranberry, ripe raspberry, red currant, dried sage, crushed mint and cinnamon bark, followed by spice cake, subtle vanilla liquor and singed toast. The persistent finish and bright acidity suggest the wine will continue to evolve in the cellar for many years to come.
