2016 COUP DE FOUDRE 37.2 CUVEE

$75.00 $75.00

With a name like Coup de Foudre(pronounced koo dah foo drah) meaning the moment when lightning strikes, or something unforgettable occurs that you want to capture forever, my expectations were set high in anticipation of tasting the new 2016 Cuvee.  They were made even higher by knowing who’s behind the project… Coup de Foudre is owned by John Schwarts whom you might recognize from Amuse Bouche, Au Sommet, Vin Perdu and PharaohMoans.  John has an eye for exceptional talent and the ability to create brands that compete with the best in the world.  The 2016 Cuvee shattered my absolutely stratospheric expectations with a riveting bouquet and dense, polished core that’s stunningly balanced, poised and polished.  At $75 this wine has everything that I look for in an Ultra Premium Napa Valley Blend.

The wine was carefully constructed by talented winemaker Kent Jarman whom you might recognize from his work at Kenefick Ranch winery or Duckhron Vineyards in the early 2000s. This distinctive Right Bank Bordeaux styled blend is built around a core of top-quality Merlot and enhanced with Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot.  The 2016 has already earned 94 Points from Vinous and with 450 cases produced, this one most certainly won’t be available for long.

Description

From Vinous, “The 2016 Merlot Cuvee 37.2 is just as good from bottle as it was from barrel. Deeply layered and yet also super-polished, the 2016 has much to recommend it. A rush of dark cherry, plum, leather, smoke, licorice, grilled herb and earthy notes abound in this beautifully resonant and expressive Merlot-based blend. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 has terrific freshness.” 94 Points
