La Muse

2008

Vintage

Great wines are often created in difficult years. The 2008 is no exception: at times it was hot, at times it was cool and at times it was humid. These three conflicting elements have resulted in great wines with balanced acidity, fruit, body and alcohol. Harvest took place September 4th through September 25th. – Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Notes

A deeply hued magenta core and a bouquet of spices, violet, lilac and clove. Blueberries, black plums and the bright expression of red fruit – wild strawberries, fresh raspberries – unfold in harmony with sophisticated herbal tones and an expansive, velvety mouth-feel. Couched in the elegance of custom-sourced, fully-traceable oak and our signature toasting profiles, the wine offers refined tannins and a lasting finish that will age beautifully for decades to come. – February 2018

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Still young and unformed, it exhibits phenomenal richness and equilibrium as well as a finish that lasts nearly a minute. Its dense plum/ purple color is accompanied by notions of black fruits, forest floor, truffles and spring flowers. It should age for 25-30+ years.
