The wines of Vérité, French for “truth”, are the result of a combination of old-world experience and new-world fruit.

Each wine is a distinct blend of unique components harvested from small vineyard blocks, culminating in a meticulously formed union of grape varieties, climate, soil expression, and winemaking technique.

Vigneron Pierre Seillan refers to this methodology as droit du sol, “right of the soil.”

Notes and Reviews

Robert Parker (100)

Showing loads of graphite, cedar wood, charcoal, crème de cassis and forest floor, this may well turn out to be a 50+ year wine. It tastes like a great first-growth Pauillac and has an amazing amount of complexity and richness.
