Full Pull Finds Marie-Eve "First Lady" of French Walla Walla Winemakers

"She seems to be at the peak of her powers, retaining a visceral, infectious passion for the work. And even as the wines have continued to improve, Forgeron's prices have held steady. A few years of that, & they now represent some of the strongest values coming out of Washington."

"I have long been enamored with Marie-Eve Gilla's winemaking. Her 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon was the second wine Full Pull ever offered, and her portfolio is consistently an example of balance, restraint, and class. Because restraint and class are not always rewarded with the same points as hedonism and overtness, these wines have never, in my opinion, garnered scores that appropriately reflect their quality.

Marie recently visited the warehouse and poured a lineup of wines as strong as I can remember from Forgeron/Blacksmith. She seems to be at the peak of her powers, retaining a visceral, infectious passion for the work. And even as the wines have continued to improve, Forgeron's prices have held steady. A few years of that, and they now represent some of the strongest values coming out of Washington."
