We all know that Jean-Luc Picard is an accomplished vintner, so it stands to reason that someone would release a highly collectible series of wines sporting the name of the iconic Star Trek captain. For those interested, Star Trek Wines offers two limited-edition wines: A Chateau Picard Cru Bordeaux, bottled at Chateau Picard in France, and a Special Reserve United Federation of Planets Old Vine Zinfandel.
The true back story of Chateau Picard wine is that for several generations in Bordeaux France, the original Chateau Picard winery has been producing world-class highly regarded and sought after Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux. Working with Chateau Picard’s winemakers in France, Star Trek Wines crafted this limited-edition release featuring the Jean-Luc Picard family label shown in the new series Star Trek: Picard with the wine from the multi-generational vineyard in Bordeaux.
Elegant, stately and dignified are but a few words to describe the wine that Federation dignitaries might enjoy at their gatherings. It has aromatics of concentrated strawberry, blackberry and plum preserves with a chewy-layered mid-palate filled with hints of white peppercorn, sweet red and black fruit.
