“Genius… Run don’t walk” to taste Morlet says Robert Parker, 96 point Syrah

Please call (713) 622-6778 to reserve.

Here’s what Robert Parker, Jr., the world’s greatest wine critic, had to say about the 2012 Syrah Bouquet Garni by Morlet Family Vineyards, just ONE of the SEVEN wines we will be tasting with acclaimed winemaker Luc Morlet on February 24 at Tony’s (reservation details below):

2012 Morlet Family Vineyards Syrah Bouquet Garni
96 POINTS

Luc Morlet further demonstrates his genius with his Syrah called Bouquet Garni from Bennett Valley, which is bottled without fining or filtration. There are only around five barrels (125 cases) of this 100% Syrah that tastes like it includes some Viognier in the blend (because of the floral and lavender notes). The 2012 Syrah Bouquet Garni offers up fabulous notes of black truffles, lavender, roasted herbs, graphite, blackberries and meaty charcuterie. Other than a handful of Syrahs from Sine Qua Non, this French-tasting Syrah is the closest thing I have tasted to Guigal’s famous Côte Rôtie La Landonne…

Run, don’t walk – take your checkbook or credit card out and splurge for the Luc Morlet Wine Express. Morlet, who comes from a family of winemakers in Champagne and consults at the Peter Michael Winery where his brother Nicolas is in charge of the winemaking, has his own operation on Route 29 north of St. Helena. His Napa cuvées were reviewed in Issue #215. His Sonoma offerings are remarkable wines that are about as good as wines made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah can be. 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.
