Marking the 50th year of Pierre Seillan's cultivation of Cabernet Franc, the precision of this wine is matched only by its elegance. A bouquet of blackberries, rose petals and Herbes de Provence unite in the iron-rich minerality that is the varietal's birthright. Perfectly cultivated fruit - harvested by micro-cru and masterfully blended - produces an intensely structured, long-lasting wine.

The 2014 Le Désir (53% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Malbec) has an inky purple color and a sweet kiss of chocolate, black truffle, forest floor, black raspberry and black currants. Opulent, but again structured and super-dense and pure, this is another massively concentrated wine meant for the long haul (and for our grandchildren). Give it 4-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 35-40 years. Remarkably, Pierre Seillan told me that 2014, while a drought year, was not actually that hot in the micro-terroirs he was working, but in terms of quality, it turned out to be the most surprisingly positive vintage he's ever witnessed.

This shows a mix of floral, herb and spice notes out front, followed quickly by cassis and plum puree flavors that streak through a long, polished finish, where the herb accents reemerge. Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Drink now through 2025.
