Vérité was founded in 1997 by the late visionary Jess Jackson and long-time Bordeaux vigneron, Pierre Seillan. In just over 20 years, the winery has managed to forge a reputation for itself as one of the most consistent producers of elite level fine wine in California. They produce just three wines, La Muse, La Joie and Le Désir, all of which are based on the traditional varieties of Bordeaux.
La Joie is made in the mould of the great wines of Pauillac and the Left Bank. From the cooler 2011 vintage, this is a fresh and perfectly poised blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec.
