“This 2019 is the vinous definition of opulence” (100 points)
– Lisa Perrotti-Brown
We have an exciting new release today from Alfred Tesseron’s (of Pontet Canet fame) Napa Estate, the Pym Rae 2019. Made in small amounts from an exceptional terroir on Mount Veeder, this “the vinous definition of opulence” is a flawless wine for Lisa Perrotti-Brown and one of the key buys of the September campaign.
A Napa red made by a Bordeaux genius:
Tesseron is one of the greats of modern Bordeaux. A visionary who took Pontet Canet from something of an also-ran to one of Pauillac’s top estates, he has a magic touch, which clearly extends to Pym Rae. A dry-farmed Bordeaux blend, with all grapes sorted manually and only the best selected, it’s an emerging Napa superstar.
A perfect, 100-point vintage:
The 2019 is the product of an excellent Napa vintage and looks to be the best Pym Rae made to date. For Lisa Perrotti-Brown, this “delivers beguiling energy from the brightness of fruit, bursting with fragrant floral notes, minerally sparks, and exotic spices” while having an “epic long, multi-layered finish”. She rates it at 100 points, instantly marking it out as a wine worth tracking down and buying.
Only 20,000 bottles for the world, very likely to sell out:
With a production of a mere 20,000 bottles in total, this is a rare wine. Thanks to the pedigree and quality behind the label, it has always been hugely popular, so factor in a perfect score, and demand is likely to sell out on release.

2019 Tesseron Estate, Pym Rae
@ SGD $1,460 / case (3*75cl OWC) ($1,576.80 inc GST)
From Alfred Tesseron’s (owner of Pontet Canet in Pauillac) estate on Mount Veeder, the 2019 Pym Rae is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 20% Cabernet Franc. Deep purple-black colored, it requires a fair bit of swirling before it charges out of the gate with bold notes of crème de cassis, black cherry compote, and blueberry pie, followed by suggestions of clove oil, lilacs, licorice, and tar, plus a spicy waft of cumin seed. The full-bodied palate delivers beguiling energy from the brightness of fruit, bursting with fragrant floral notes, minerally sparks, and exotic spices. It has a taut backbone of invigorating acidity, matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins, supporting the epic long, multi-layered finish. This 2019 is the vinous definition of opulence. This is the first vintage certified organic and biodynamic. Only about 20,000 bottles were made and are due to be released in autumn 2023.
