Luc and Jodie Morlet launched their brand in 2006 with a goal of crafting vineyard designates of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Napa and Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, a Syrah, a Proprietary white and a Late Harvest wine from Sonoma fruit. They found a home for their production in a historic St Helena estate that was a pre-Prohibition winery. Their St. Helena estate is planted to Cabernet Sauvignon and is precisely farmed. Morlet’s “Mon Chevalier” vineyard is located in Knights Valley and is planted to Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. “Cœur de Vallée” vineyard is located on the Oakville Bench has Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. In addition to the estate vineyards, they farm the vineyards in Bennett Valley, Dry Creek, Fort Ross-Seaview, Napa, and Russian River Valley. Luc, who comes from a family of sparkling wine producers in France, studied business in Dijon. He has been making wines and consulting at such illustrious wineries as Peter Michael, Staglin, Vineyard 7 & 8, amongst others. At the heart of his winemaking lie Old World techniques from Burgundy and Bordeaux that are modified to reflect his New World presence and stylistic preferences. He practices low-intervention techniques to craft wines that are deftly balanced, rich and complex. The wines are aged in 100% new French oak barrels.(IT)
