100 Point Wines

Sampling the best from Verite

100 Point Wines At last weekend’s Cayman Cookout event, I had the pleasure of tasting seven of Vérité’s top wines, all of which have garnered 100 points from Robert Parker at one time or another.

These wines, while a bit pricey, were all truly divine, thanks to winemaker Pierre Seillan’s production method of “listening to the message of the soil.”

Each wine, made with a blend of grapes from some 40 plots, showcases the terroir and typography of Sonoma. This typography is so complex, Seillan says, that you can claim specific flavor from each plot.

Because of the high rankings of each of these wines, I will refrain from giving them point scores and instead simply describe each wine’s taste and feel.

  • We tasted some of Verite's wines early last year at the recommendation from a young lady at the Jordan Winery were we also had a tasting. We bought one bottle ($100+) to have with dinner but refrained from buying more due to the prices. Their top of the line wine at that time was being offered at $450 per bottle. Having bought Harlan Estate, Bond, etc for half of that price simply put us off.
