Folie a Deux Chardonnay 2012

External Review:

Aromas of Fuji apple, peach, and pineapple are complemented by zesty and lusciousfruit flavors and nuances of coconut, vanilla, and toasted oak. This sunshine-infusedNapa Valley Chardonnay has bright acidity, a round mid-palate, and a crisp, cleanfinish.

  In 1981, two wine-loving psychiatrists established a boutique winery they name Folie a Deux, a French term meaning “A passion shared by two.”  Thirty years later, our shared passion is creating world-class varietal wines from the leading appellations of Sonoma County. Made to be enjoyed upon release, our Russian River Valley Chardonnay, Sonoma County Merlot, Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, and Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel embody the perfect fusion of grape variety and growing region.  Showcasing vibrant aromas and flavors, they offer a striking balance of intensity and accessibility.  At Folie a Deux, we think it’s ok to be a little crazy about wine.  After all, we are!

Rating: 86/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the September 2010 issue. Here is a mid-sized Chardonnay with clean and direct appley and lightly citrusy fruit tones filled out nicely by a distinctly caramelly, roasted vanilla bean note that lends just the right touch of richness to its aromatic beginnings and enhances an equally likeable and somewhat rounded, decently energetic set of flavors in the mouth. The search for the good $12 Chardonnay must include this oh-so-priceworthy bottling.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Unlikely to improve with further aging.

With fresh citrus aromas from Monterey County, lush tropical fruit flavors from Santa Barbara County and fine structure from Mendocino County, this is one palate pleaser that's guaranteed to satisfy!
