COUP DE FOUDRE, 'MASTER BOUTELLIER' RED BLEND
CALISTOGA, NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2018
If there's anyone who knows about making ultra-premium Napa Valley wines, it's John Schwartz. As a food and wine bon vivant, John has partnered with some of the biggest names in Napa to produce a stable of irresistible, cult-caliber, blockbuster wines. With projects spanning from Amuse Bouche, the celebrated wine produced with former Screaming Eagle winemaker, Heidi Barrett, along with Au Sommet, a partnership with vineyard manager Jim Barbour (Pride, Grace, Blankiet), Schwartz knows a thing or two about the elements required to produce a wine of the finest pedigree. Using exceptional grapes sourced from the best vineyards, Coup de Foudre wines follow the cult Cabernet formula to a T. Today we present the 2018 Coup de Foudre ‘Master Boutellier,’ a Bordeaux-style blend sourced from Coup de Foudre’s premier Calistoga vineyards. With special Concierge pricing that brings each bottle sub-$30, this is an offer that calls for stocking up!
The name draws from the French phrase "Coup de Foudre", which translates to "when lightning strikes," or "love at first sight.” The story of the name follows a personal anecdote of John Schwartz when he first met his wife in France, but doubles as a perfect embodiment of the wines. When first opened, the wines have an immediacy and impact that is profound. Lush, opulent and seductive, the wines are 100% sourced from their Calistoga estate and barrel-aged in a combination of Taransaud, Treuil, Leroi, Orion and Sylvain barrels. The 2018 ‘Master Boutellier’ is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and 20% Petit Verdot that was barrel-aged for 14 months prior to bottling. The aromatics leap out of the glass, exhibiting notes of red currant, blueberry, and milk chocolate. The wine is concentrated, velvety, and ready for immediate enjoyment, though it will continue to shine over the coming few years. This wine is an impressive addition to the Schwartz lineup of cult wines, and for one week, we're offering Concierge-only pricing up to 20% off. Secure your order today!
