One of the newest luxury wine producers from Napa with Julien Fayard at the helm. Purlieu or the edge of the forest is a reference to their home in Coombsville.

To Kalon means most beautiful in Greek and this Napa vineyard within the Oakville AVA certainly is. It is widely considered to be a 'Grand Cru' of California and one of the finest vineyards in the world. Purlieu sources their fruit from Andy Beckstoffer, a legendary grower in the Napa Valley. And Julien worked for Lafite Rothschild and Dalle Valle, so this has pedigree writ all over.

".. something about these vineyards that just screams first-growth quality. This one has classic Pauillac crème de cassis, spice box, charcoal embers, graphite and forest floor. It is full-bodied and opulent, with layers of fruit, and of course, being a 2014, the tannins are sweet and the wine already compellingly addictive and full of charm. Kudos to Purlieu Wines for these great efforts." Robert Parker
