Critical Acclaim

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
More thick, chewy and decadent, the 2005 Estate Cuvee is comprised of 52% Syrah, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Petit Verdot. It is blockbuster stuff with sweet blackcurrants, creme de cassis, truffle, lead pencil, chocolate and charred earth aromas and flavors all showing on the nose. It doesn’t pull any punches on the palate either and possesses massive fruit and texture, sweet tannin and a knockout finish. While it could be mistaken for a Bordeaux on the nose, it's California all the way on the palate. Drink it over the coming decade.

L'Aventure, California

L'Aventure was founded in 1998 by a French winemaker, Stephan Asseo. After Stephan graduated enology school in Burgundy, the Asseo family bought their first estate, Domaine de Courteillac, in the Bordeaux area in 1982. Later, the family purchased additional properties: Chateau Robin and Chateau Fleur-Cardinale in Saint-Emilion. Stephan raised these properties to a level of great quality, while managing some other well-established domaines such as Chateau Guillot-Clauzel in Pomerol and Chateau Corbin in St Emilion.

Stephan saw in the New World a unique opportunity to expand his experience, while gaining more freedom in viticulture and vinification. He began by looking all over California for land, including Napa/Sonoma and Santa Barbara counties, but it was the terroir and climate of Paso Robles that impressed him the most.

L'Aventure is located on the west side of Paso Robles in the Willow Creek District. The 127-acre property with 57 acres planted, is comprised of multiple hills of various elevation and complex soils. Because of its proximity to the ocean, the vineyard has clear warm days and drastic cool nighttime temperatures which increases the time of the grape’s maturation cycle providing fruit that creates a more complex and balanced wine. Stephan’s choice of this lean terroir provides him with the fruit necessary to create wine with a good balance between alcohol and acidity. The resulting wines are full and rich yet well balanced and elegant.
