Story

"Ideal early season growing conditions set the tempo for the season and we saw near perfect fl owering weather leading into a mild summer. By verasion, we were seeing phenology dates tracking two weeks ahead of average. Harvest began in August and continued non-stop for 45 straight days, without a hitch. The fruit was all safely in the winery before there were any threats of inclement weather. 2013 was a year of exceptional quality and smooth sailing." Christopher Vandendriessche, Winemaker

Accolades

"It is not a very big CuvĂ©e (only five barrels) but is has classic Cote Rotie bacon fat, apricot, lychee character, with dark raspberries and blacker currants.  Its deep, ripe dense purple color is followed by a full-bodied, beautiful, velvety textured, lush wine that is super-alluring, gorgeously pure and very French in style.  Drink it over the next 7-10 years." 95 Points, Robert Parker (December 2015)
