Lot 4 - One (1) Six-pack of VGS Chateau Potelle’s incredibly unique 2016 50/50 Cuveé in Wooden Crate

The 50/50 Cuveé is a blend of VGS Chateau Potelle’s best Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon coupled with Merlot and Petit Verdot crafted at their sister winery in St. Julien, Bordeaux – a legend on the Left Bank!

50% from Napa Valley | 50% from Bordeaux

This wine offers the perfect sip of Jean-Noel Fourmeaux’s 35 years of wine craft in Napa Valley, and in the glass is a magical juxtaposition of Napa Valley fruit and
Old-World character. Blackberry, cocoa and spice dance atop Old-World nuance and depth for a wine that is delicious now… and will evolve in to benchmark vintage with age.

This exceptionally unique wine stands alone in all of Napa Valley as only an inspired Jean-Noel would have the creativity and drive to bring such a special wine to life. It is the first of its kind in the American wine industry and offers a not-to-be-missed addition to both growing and established cellars.

“The 2016 Fourmeaux Red Wine is THE most significant wine I have ever crafted in my now 38 years of winemaking in the Napa Valley”
-
Jean-Noel Fourmeaux

A 10-case lot of the latest wine from VGS Chateau Potelle, the FOURMEAUX Red Blend 2016, set a record for the highest barrel price ever at the 38th Auction Napa
Valley in the summer of 2018, surpassing the previous high by more than $40,000. The record-setting wine sold for $114,300, or $952.50 per bottle

“The runaway winner, in fact, VGS Chateau Potelle, was a truly Bordeaux inspired iteration of Napa Cabernet Sauvignon (not surprising given its French heritage).”
