Morlet Family Vineyards, founded by Luc and Jodie Morlet, produces high-quality wines showcasing Napa Valley and Sonoma County terroir. Their handcrafted wines, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah, are known for elegance, complexity, and ageability.

"Cœur de Vallée" translates to "Heart of the Valley" in English. It is a term used to describe a wine that comes from the central or most prestigious part of a wine region, often representing the best expression of the terroir and winemaking expertise.

Deep garnet-purple in color, the ‘Cœur de Vallée’ is characterized by a striking bouquet of lavender and violets over a core of sweet red berries, crème de cassis, Chambord liqueur, blackcurrants and licorice, and com­pelling notes of mocha, espresso, chocolate and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied with an impressive fine-grained texture, this powerful yet refined Cabernet Sauvignon is expressive from start to finish, boasting a background freshness that supports the intense black fruit layers. The wine displays an extraordinary concentration, richness, fi­nesse and purity while possessing silky and polished tan­nins leading to an elegant lift on the long, lush finish. Featuring the interaction of the clayish yet well-draining gravelly volcanic soil, the site’s microclimates and the low-interventionistic Morlet winemaking approach, the stunning ‘Cœur de Vallée’ ages gracefully for decades.


94 points from The Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2011 Coeur de Vallee, a 225-case blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc, all from the Beckstoffer To Kalon Vineyard. This sexy 2011 is a candidate for the wine of the vintage. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of forest floor, violets, bouquet garni, black currant and blueberry fruit, stunning richness and no herbaceousness or astringency, and a long, lush finish. A terrific effort in this challenging vintage, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-12 years.” - Tasted on Oct 31, 2013 by Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Morlet Family Vineyards由Luc和Jodie Morlet創立,生產展示納帕谷和索諾瑪縣風土的高品質葡萄酒。他們手工釀造的葡萄酒,包括赤霞珠、霞多麗、黑比諾和西拉,以優雅、複雜和可陳年性而聞名。

「Cœur de Vallée」翻譯成中文是「山谷之心」。這個詞語用來描述一款來自葡萄酒產區中央或最負盛名地區的葡萄酒,通常代表著該地區風土和釀酒技術的最佳表現。

深色石榴紫色,「Cœur de Vallée」以令人驚艷的薰衣草和紫羅蘭花香為特色,帶有甜美的紅莓、黑醋栗果醬、黑加侖子、甘草的核心,以及摩卡、濃縮咖啡、巧克力和森林地面的迷人氣息。中等至飽滿的酒體擁有令人印象深刻的細緻質地,這款強而有力卻優雅的赤霞珠從頭至尾都表現出色,背景中帶有的新鮮感支撐著濃郁的黑色水果層次。這款葡萄酒展現出非凡的濃度、豐富度、精緻度和純淨度,同時擁有絲滑優雅的單寧,並在悠長而豐潤的收結中展現出優雅的提升。這款令人驚艷的「Cœur de Vallée」融合了黏土質但排水良好的礫石火山土壤、該地區的小氣候和Morlet釀酒方法的低干預性,能優雅地陳年數十年。

「更棒的是2011年的Coeur de Vallee,它是一款由55%赤霞珠和45%品丽珠混釀而成的225箱葡萄酒,全部來自Beckstoffer To Kalon葡萄園。這款性感的2011年葡萄酒是該年份的佳釀。深紅寶石/紫色的酒色之後是森林地面、紫羅蘭、香料包裝、黑醋栗和藍莓果實的香氣,令人驚艷的豐富度,沒有草本或澀感,以及悠長豐潤的收結。這是在這個具有挑戰性的年份中的一個了不起的努力,可以在未來的10-12年內享用。」 - 由羅伯特·M·帕克試飲於2013年10月31日。
