2015 Le Droitier | 94 PointsJuly 2018Coup de Foudre's 2015 Le Droitier is gorgeous. Rich, dense and super-expressive, the 2015 hits all the right notes while also retaining the mid-weight structure that is such a signature of these wines. A rush of dark cherry, plum, mocha, new leather, licorice and espresso build as this silky, polished blend shows off its racy personality. What a beautiful wine this is.— Antonio Galloni

2016 Les Bouquinistes | 93 PointsMay 23, 2018A juicy and delicious red with dark berries and hints of spices and dried mushrooms. Full body and round, soft tannins. Cool field blend of petit verdot, syrah, merlot, zinfandel and malbec. So drinkable now.
2015 Cuvée 37.2 | 93-94 PointsJanuary 2018The 2015 Merlot Cuvée 37.2 is gorgeous. Ripe, supple and inviting, with plenty of Merlot pushed forward, the 2015 Cuvée 37.2 is a winner. Succulent red cherry, plum, and rose petal are juicy in the glass, but it is the wine's freshness and overall vivacity – both hard to achieve in 2015 – make the wine totally irresistible. In 2015, the Cuvée 37.2 is absolutely delicious. Drink it over the next handful of years.— Antonio Galloni
2015 Cabernet Sauvignon | 93 PointsJanuary 2018Coup de Foudre's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is plump, juicy and voluptuous. Grilled herb and floral notes add aromatic lift to the plush, textured fruit. This is another 2015 that has retained gorgeous freshness and vibrancy. Red cherry, pomegranate, wild flowers and sweet spices infuse this super-expressive Cabernet Sauvignon. Dollops of Merlot and Cabernet Franc round out the blend.— Antonio Galloni
2016 Malbec | 93+ PointsDecember 2017Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Malbec (barrel sample) has a nose of blackberries, plum preserves and spice cake with hints of potpourri, chocolate box and cardamom, Big, rich, voluptuous and full-bodied in the mouth, with concentrated berry preserves and spicy layers plus velvety tannins to support. It finishes long and perfumed.
2014 Cuvée 37.2 | 95 PointsDecember 12, 2016A very fine red with currants, berries and walnuts that follow through to a full body that's tight and focused, not to mention beautifully polished. 65% merlot, 30% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Better in 2018.
