Capturing the rich, dense character of Cabernet Franc grapes from the famous Beckstoffer-To Kalon vineyard in Oakville, and bottled only in outstanding vintages, this wine pays homage to Luc’s great-grandfather, Gaston Morlet, a force of nature in Avenay-Val-D’Or. His spirit remains a force behind generations of a passion for growing grapes and making the best wines possible. Crafted from 100% Cabernet Franc, this wine is truly a “Force de la Nature.” ...LEARN MORE

In St. Helena, the heart of the Napa Valley, Luc and Jodie Morlet handcraft vins de terroirs and unique cuvées from the surrounding Napa Valley and Sonoma Coast. Meticulously farmed vineyards and low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful yet refined wines displaying personality, complexity and graceful aging capability. By taking Old World principles and adapting them to California, the Morlet style results in wines which are harmonious in their intensity, richness and refinement. Unwavering commitment to quality leads to small yields, attentive sorting, and the highest standard when blending. Thus, a very limited amount of each wine is produced.

"Luc Morlet is not only a fabulous winemaking talent,
he knows how to bring the French savoir faire of complexity,
elegance and precision to the ripe, concentrated, intense fruit of California."
