Verite La Muse 2013

Upon tasting Verite’s 2013s, Robert Parker wrote, “after 37 years of tasting just about everything of quality that’s been produced, I believe I’m in a position to recognize truly world-class efforts that are as complete and compelling as good wine can be” and promptly awarded a perfect 100 points to the La Muse. Having now tasted it ourselves, Having just tasted it ourselves, we can certainly see why: this is a simply astonishing wine.

 

Made with absolutely meticulous attention to detail and in a great vintage for Sonoma, Verite’s 2013s are magnificent. For Parker, the “pinnacle of what Vérité has produced… simply the essence of a vineyard site, a vine and a philosophy of no compromise.” Of the three cuvees they craft and that we were lucky enough to taste, the Pomerol styled La Muse was the stand-out. All were incredible, but this seemed to have that something extra.

 

It’s easy to become blasé about 100 point scores as they seem more and more prevalent. Wines like the 2013 La Muse make you realise that there are those that defy you to see them as anything other than flawlessly magnificent. This is a true wish-list wine.
