Exquisitely rare Napa Cabernet from the man behind Pétrus...

Exquisitely rare Napa Cabernet from the man behind Pétrus...

Anyone who is a fan of Bordeaux's right bank is most likely familiar with the name Christian Moueix. Considered one of the most important figures in the wine world, he has been involved with at least eight chateaux in Pomerol and Saint-Émilion, most notably as the winemaker at legendary Pétrus. Along with his wife Cherise he is also the owner of Dominus Estate in Napa Valley. With such notable achievements it might come as a surprise that he is one of the most humble and charmingly honest characters in the business, whose sole aim is to bring quality to the consumer.
 
The 2012 Othello which we've found for you today comes from the Napanook Vineyards of Moueix’s Napa Valley venture, Dominus. It was created through the desire to embody the extraordinary volcanic terroir of the vineyard in a wine that can be enjoyed young, and that provides excellent value for money.
 
Moueix speaks of working in Napa as "akin to living in a parallel dimension; some aspects are so very different and others are universal. Producing wines is a never-ending lesson and it really keeps you humble." This wine certainly has the universal quality and finesse of a Moueix wine, but is, at the end of the day, unmistakably from Napa. It is seldom seen in Europe, so take advantage of this stunning, rare offer!

"Of a bright ruby red color, Othello opens with intense yet precise aromas of high-toned red fruit (raspberry and blackcurrant) complemented by notes of black pepper and laurel. On the palate, the wine presents a good tannic density while maintaining a supple structure and a lovely aromatic persistence. Mineral notes continue to unfold over the long finish"
