Product Description

This inordinately exciting wine comes from the Bure Family winemaking team led by superstar winemaker Luc Morlet. Robert Parker himself awarded this incredible effort 95 points noting, “The backward, inky/purple-hued 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Duration includes a dollop of Cabernet Franc. It offers up scents of asphalt, blueberry liqueur, camphor and graphite. This dense, full-bodied, opulent effort can be drunk now and over the next 15 years.”

Mr. Parker goes on to note, “Former Russian Olympic and professional hockey player Valeri Bure has hired Luc Morlet to fashion these 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvées from cuttings from the Margaux clone (which is also present in the Bosché Vineyard of Freemark Abbey). The Estate wine comes from St. Helena, the Duration from the Beckstoffer Missouri Hopper and To Kalon vineyards, and the Thirteen is from St. Helena. The 2012s and 2013s are very impressive wines, possessing both complexity and richness.”

Having tasted the entire Bure lineup, we can honestly say that these wines represent one of the most exciting projects currently underway in all of Napa! Every Bure wine captures the rich fruit opulence for which the Golden State is revered; yet retain a European elegance that’s more closely associated with the Bordeaux region, in general and the commune of Margaux, in particular. This is definitely a property to keep your eye on! EXTREMELY LIMITED!
