2018 & 2019 Kapcsándy Grand Vins – Napas Consistent Masterpieces

The Grand Vin has been a benchmark for excellence for many years now. Since 2007, it has received these impressive perfect 100-point scores from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. This remarkable consistency highlights the dedication and expertise of the winemaking team at Kapcsándy Estate, led by the talented Lou Kapcsándy and renowned winemaking consultant Anthony Arcudi. These constant reoccurring ratings alone make Kapcsándy’s wines a rare find, but there's much more to discover about these remarkable releases.

The Site Behind The Wines

The Kapcsándy Estate, situated in the Yountville appellation of Napa Valley, is home to some of the most exceptional vineyard sites in the region. Its prime location, climate, and terroir combine to create a remarkable environment for cultivating Bordeaux grape varieties, particularly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Kapcsándy states: “We’ve always been inspired by French wines and our vineyard management and winemaking are heavily influenced by Bordeaux-style practices that produce lower-alcohol wines. Yet we never lose sight of the fact that our grapes are grown on the floor of the world-renowned Napa Valley. Kapcsándy wines reveal that exceptional sense of place.”

Rare Wine Through Low Production

One of the defining features of Kapcsándy Grand Vin is its incredibly low production. In 2018, only 400 cases of this exceptional wine were crafted, making it a highly sought-after and limited-edition vintage. The 2019 vintage was even more exclusive, with just 300 cases produced. This low production adds to the allure of these wines and as enthusiasts you know that owning one of these is to experience something truly special and unique.

Contrasting Characters - 2018 Vs. 2019

While both the 2018 and 2019 Kapcsándy Grand Vin are extraordinary wines, they exhibit distinct characteristics due to differences in growing seasons and winemaking. The 2018 vintage is known for its opulence, with rich, ripe black fruit flavors, velvety tannins, and a long, lingering finish. In contrast, the 2019 vintage offers a slightly cooler profile, showcasing vibrant red fruit notes, exquisite balance, and elegance. Both wines are a testament to the excellence and enduring legacy of this esteemed Napa Valley vineyard, showcasing the remarkable terroir and winemaking expertise that make them a true treasure.
