2016
Chardonnay

Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

June 2019 Release
Only 200 3-pks produced.

From the famed Bacigalupi Vineyard in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley Appellation (same vineyard as Chateau Montelena’s chardonnay that won the 1976 Judgement of Paris).

Near perfect growing conditions in 2016 created a wine of great complexity. Intense aromas of freshly baked brioche, peach blossoms, candied orange, marzipan, lemon oil, yellow peach and dried apricots. Notes of vanilla, toasted hazelnut, lemon custard with meringue and subtle white truffle interact to complete a multi-layered and very intense bouquet. In the mouth, the texture is ample and creamy while remaining balanced with a lingering mineral finish. Approachable now, the wine will reward several years of cellaring and continue to develop for years, much like its Burgundian cousins from Corton-Charlemagne.

Fermentation & Aging:
40% Concrete Egg
30% New French Oak Barrel (Rousseau Video & Grands Vosges)
30% Stainless Steel Barrel

Varietal Composition: 100% Chardonnay
Vineyard: Bacigalupi Vineyard
Appellation: Russian River

Mount Veeder, Napa Valley

The 2016 FOURMEAUX Red Wine joins the 2013 vintage & REPEATS at the most expensive barrel lot sold at the 2019 Auction Napa Valley!!!

98 Points

This wine bears my name… it is what I have learned during my life and what I have become. Art is evolutionary. Winemaking is too.
Representing maturity and wisdom while demonstrating presence and dimension: this a culmination of my decades old love affair with wine and life.

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.

Mount Veeder’s rugged volcanic soils force the vines to seek out nutrients and in turn produce tiny berries with intensely concentrated fruit: blackberry, blueberry, currant and spices. Accented by aromas of cocoa, baking spices, and sage which always provide a great freshness.

In the mouth, the wine is rich, full and ample, with multiple layers of dark fruits. The mountain tannins while present are well integrated supporting the wines structure. The overall impression is a wine of great and distinctive personality: a wine that claims its birthplace which is only highlighted with a subtle, highly respectful winemaking style. This wine is made to be enjoyed now yet has the potential of long aging that will only enhance its character and complexity.
