Maison L'Envoyé, The House of the Messenger, was born out of the Oregon/Burgundy partnership of Evening Land founder Mark Tarlov and Louis Michel Liger-Belair of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. Prior to his wine ventures Tarlov wrote speeches for Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, as well as directed the 1999 rom-com Simply Irresistible starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. I can only assume he's Frank Abagnale's little brother. This is some serious Beaujolais. Ultra pure floral notes of iris and lavender play well off the high-toned bright red fruit along with layers smoke, licorice, stone, and herbs. A stylish alloy of modern, Cru Beaujolais and rich New World decorum. — 3 years ago

This is the "Blue Label" that's, first of all, not very blue, and secondly, in my humble opinion, (don't shoot the messenger),not as enjoyable as the regular bottling. At least, on multiple occasions, has never been for me. Which is the exact opposite of SQN. Not that it's bad. Just not as seductive to me. Anybody else feel the same? — 5 years ago
