Critical Acclaim

VN90 Vinous Jun 2017

"Bright salmon skin. Lively aromas of fresh peach, pear, honeydew, tangerine and strawberry, backed by subtle floral and mineral nuances. Juicy, focused and light on its feet, offering surprisingly concentrated orchard and pit fruit and red berry flavors that are braced by a refreshingly bitter jolt of blood orange. This one has pretty much all the fruit bases covered, that’s for sure. Concentrated yet lithe in character, with excellent closing focus and a suave floral quality arriving late." (90 pts.)

SP87 Wine Spectator Web only – 2017

"A spicy, crisp rosé, with melon rind accents adding detail to peach and white raspberry flavors. Clean, lasting finish. Drink now. 11,900 cases imported." (87 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
