Cuvée Jean

Cuvée Jean - Members Only

Named after Guillaume & Solene's son born in 2012. It comes from a cooler area in Santa Maria Valley to make this wine a little more like France's cool climate Syrah and inspired by Cote Rôtie. Similar to the Hommage à nos Pairs it was also co-fermented with Viognier, fermented with stem, the texture of this wine is outstanding that will age for more than a decade. This wine displays a brightness with broader tannins and much more pepper spices.

Sweet Clémentine

Sweet Clémentine

For our oldest daughter, Clémentine. She was the sweetest thing I had ever seen, so in her honor I made a dessert wine, our Sweet Clémentine. Whether you like sweet wine or not, give this wine the chance to enchant your palate. We stop the fermentation halfway through by adding some local boutique brandy. In this way we keep some natural sweetness and fortify the juice to get a Banyuls’ style dessert wine. It shows more red wine characteristics than regular dessert wines and finishes just like a dry wine due to the balance of the sweetness. Accompanied with cheese or dessert or by itself, it will be the perfect ending for your dinner. It has aged in neutral oak for 15 months.

Serve at 58°F- 60°F | Drink 2022 - 2070

Mon Millésime - Invitational

Mon Millésime - Invitational - Members Only

Mon Millésime, a fancy word to say my vintage, my year, is Guillaume's top creation. It is conceived only when the vintage allows it, made from the best selected fruits, processed in an exceptional barrel that, by its form and wood, is one of a few made in the world. Everything about the wine is concealed, from the blend to who can get it. Waitlisted | Invitational Only
