Vérité Le Désir

Vérité, Le Désir 2018

Cabernet Franc dominant, with touches of raspberry leaf, rosemary and sage, and mouth-watering acidities. A lovely tension and grip runs right through the palate. Floral edged with peony and curled woodsmoke highlighting the depth through the core. Deftly made by Pierre Seillan, showcasing an excellent lightness of touch without sacrificing tension, and for me the most successful of the three Vérités in this vintage.
