Hyde de Villaine Hdv Belle Cousine 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Rose potpourri, leather, and cocoa layer in the glass to delicately compliment beautiful aromas of plum, fresh blueberry and savory spice. Dry herbs and a hint of fresh olive give this wine depth and complexity. This wonderfully balanced wine accents the timeless companionship of these two Bordeaux varieties. Freshness and minerality accompany silky and complex tannin texture. Firm yet eligent, 2014 Belle Cousine displays black cherry and fresh blackcurrant notes that build into a delightfully long-lasting finish. Even in its youth this wine displays depth and harmony that guarantee that it will drink spectacularly for years to come! "Dark, pliant and inviting, the 2014 opens with a compelling range of floral and savory aromatics. Put simply, the 2014 is absolutely delicious!" -Antonio Galloni (94 Pt)

HdV is a family venture between Hyde Vineyards of Napa Valley and Aubert & Pamela de Villaine of Burgundy, France. Aubert de Villaine, married to the Hyde's cousin Pamela F. de Villaine, is one of Burgundies most recognized individuals. Born and raised in the rich traditions of France's greatest winemaking techniques, Aubert brings to the partnership the foundation upon which the venture bases its theories and practices. Larry Hyde came to the Napa Valley over thirty years ago with a great love of wine and the soil. In 1979, Larry left his job as an apprentice at some of Napa's finest wineries to purchase and transform the Carneros soils into what is now known as Hyde Vineyards. Twenty-five years later, Hyde Vineyards has become renown for the unique expression of its Carneros terroir. Joining our venture in 2002, our winemaker, Stéphane Vivier, brings with him skills in vineyard management and winemaking from around the world. Born and raised in France, Stéphane's skills were cultivated in the vineyards and cellars of Pommard, Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet and then expanded through his work in New Zealand and the Sonoma Coast Appellation. HdV is bottled under the coat of arms of the historic de la Guerra family from which Pamela de Villaine and the Hydes descend. The De la Guerra Family is one of the oldest winemaking families in California and traces its winemaking history back to a gold medal received at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Fair. Read less
