Menage a Trois Gold Chardonnay California 2015

External Review by WineExpress.com:

At Ménage à Trois, they believe you can never be too rich, and neither can your wine. So they embarked on a mission to create the richest most indulgent Chardonnay to come out of the golden state—a Chardonnay so decadent and luxurious that it’s bound to start a new gold rush in California. Introducing Ménage à Trois Gold, a wine that sets the new standard for Chardonnay—the gold standard. Sourcing is from premier vineyards in California’s Lodi-Delta, Central Coast, Napa and Mendocino appellations, regions known for producing grapes with rich flavors and aromas. Viognier and a touch of Verdelho are added to the blend, making Gold even more lavish. To enhance the sweet, spicy character of the wine, grapes are first fermented with French and American oak, and then undergo malolactic fermentation for a lush, creamy mouthfeel. The wine is aged sur lie, emphasizing the round, supple texture of the wine. Wine Enthusiast Magazine said "A little more expensive than this producer's regular Chardonnay, it's worth it. Classic nutmeg and vanilla aromas lead to vivid and delicious flavors echoing baking spices, ripe apples and a touch of sweet cream. Quite full bodied, the wine's texture is also rich enough to encourage a lingering finish."

  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!
