Modicum New Vintage Release

The new year release of the 2016 vintage:
St. Helena, Rutherford, and Hestan vineyards. 

These exceptional wines are offered at an outstanding value and in a variety of sizes, but with limited availability due to our small production – after all, Modicum does mean “a very little of the very best.” 

Your connection to our community supports all of us at The French Laundry, and now we hope to return the favor—connecting with you through your support of Modicum also extends to the Keller Restaurant Relief Fund, where a portion of each purchase will go towards our furloughed employees who make up our restaurant family during this pandemic in Napa Valley, New York City, Surfside, and Las Vegas.

“I still remember crafting the first vintage of Modicum in Rutherford. It was an honor to have Laura and Thomas let me work with them on this 2000 vintage. One of my highlights of working side by side with them at the French Laundry.         The wine was awesome."

Bobby Stuckey, Master Sommelier and Partner, Frasca Food and Wine

“A balanced and elegant wine from nose to finish. Aromatically energetic, this wine screams raspberry jam, rose petal and cocoa upon first pour and is then layered with floral, mineral and black and red fruit on the palate. A structure that would make you feel like it is made of silk, coupled with a finish driven by acidity, this wine’s freshness and versatility is directly attributed to the outstanding vintage of 2016.”

Andrew Adelson, Head Sommelier at The French Laundry
