Folie a Deux Russian River Valley Sonoma County Chardonnay, 2010


Surprisingly good value.  Sometimes in the lower priced chards you get hit over the head with a thwack of oak; not here.  It’s got oak, but not “lynn-dee-min” oak, if you know what I mean.  Lots of apple, pear, OK balance and a buttery flourish.  Was a treat with Tuscan melon and prosciutto and some fresh yam gnocchi.  Sure, it’s not fine Burgundy, and faces stiff competition in its class, but at the price point this is exceptional value.

 

Not to be confused with Vosne-Romanée Pré de la Folie!

 

Price: $15.50 USD on a whim while in the US.

 

Market Liquidity: We liked the change in our pocket.
