From one of my favourite AVA’s, this Chard doesn’t disappoint. Not only is this a beautiful full body, complex & balanced wine, but it’s also made under 14.5% alcohol. Score: 94/100.
Tasting Note: Bright yellow gold in colour with good acidity, medium+ intense nose, mild tannin & a long length on the finish. This wine features: Lemon drops, Golden Delicious apple, peach, clementine, pear, pineapple, mango, kumquat, apricot, Allspice, caramel & honey.
Interesting Point: Folie à Deux wines are sustainably grown in Sonoma County.
Pairings: Drink this now or in next 8-10 years on its own or pair it with Lobster Thermidor
My Opinion: Highly Recommended
