Coup de Foudre
Napa Valley and Sonoma County
Coup de Foudre (koo dah foo drah) is the moment when "lightning strikes" or something unforgettable occurs that you want to capture forever. A team with extensive wine experience, John Schwartz, owner of Amuse Bouche Winery in Napa Valley, has embarked on a collaborative path to create a unique wine portfolio with elements worthy of a Coup de Foudre.
In tough times, we can fall back on love to get us through the challenging moments in life. Another option? A killer bottle of Pinot Noir is guaranteed to sooth the nerves and pamper the soul. With its balance of dark red fruits, spice, and earth, the 2011 Coup de Foudre Pinot is certain to do just that. (Only 250 cases produced)
6 bottles of this incredible wine, comes with wax-sealed wooden case. Select ground shipping and in the month of August we'll upgrade to express temperature-controlled shipping.
Another excellent Cabernet from Coup de Foudre's Calistoga vineyard. Dense fruit on the palate - licorice, cassis liqueur, and cedar. A wine that will last for at least a decade in your cellar, but offers immediate pleasure to those who can't wait.

"pure seductiveness--dense purple in color, plenty of chocolate, espresso, black cherry and blackcurrant and Asian plum in a full-bodied, lush, heady, totally irresistible style."
-94-95 Points: Robert Parker
“A rich, unctuous wine, the 2013 Le Gauchiste offers up a compelling concoction of blueberry jam, spices, mint, licorice, lavender and
crème de cassis. The 2013 is unabashedly opulent and forward. It should drink well with minimal cellaring.”
– Antonio Galloni/Vinous (94 pts)
Coup de Foudre's finest Sauvignon Blanc to date. Racy acidity mingles with voluptuous tropical and stone fruit to create an outrageously drinkable and collectible wine.
The perfect gift presentation for a bottle of wine adds a touch of luxury to your holiday gift.
iSommelier is the solution to eliminate all limitations during conventional decanting. It is the first smart decanter using a revolutionary technology that reinvents the decanting experience to enhance the flavors and aromas of the wine in just a few minutes. iSommelier also softens the tannins and transports the wine to a stage of maturity that would otherwise require years of cellaring.
A Pomerol style blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2011 Coup de Foudre 37.2 Cuvee shows a complexity and elegance from start to finish, and displays an intensity that is not only enjoyable now, but for years to come. (Only 14 barrels produced)
