Looking for something truly unique? Referred to by TIME magazine as “The Wine Diva of Napa”, Heidi Barrett has crafted some of the most elegant Reds to come from the region. We only have a few remaining bottles of the fantastic Amuse Bouche ’05, ’06, and ’07 vintages.
Capping the list is the very special Vin Perdu. Vin Perdu can be translated from French as “lost wine”. But it is also a reference to one of the great French culinary contributions to the world: Pain Perdu (literally, lost bread). When a baguette is a day old (and quite state), it becomes eligible for transformation into a wonderful breakfast – thick slices of bread soaked in an egg/sugar batter, then fried into “French Toast”! The sizzling butter and toasty caramel aromas revive the lost art of cooking from scratch.
Each year, when the opportunity arises, Vin Perdu will be blended from scratch. Heidi will be at liberty to create something completely unique and undoubtedly exceptional, using a variable palette of ingredients. So we do not get lost in translation, Heidi will only produce Vin Perdu when she can produce wine to be proud of. Amuse Bouche has created a remarkable label for this wine and are confident that Vin Perdu will decorate your wine cellars and enliven your dinner parties. Each bottle has been signed by Heidi Barrett.
