Natalie's Score: 91/100

Full-bodied and luscious Californian Chardonnay with attractive aromas of toasted almond, butterscotch and golden apple. Pair with roasted chicken or turkey. Folie a Deux translates to a passion shared by two. The Chardonnay grapes are sourced from Sonoma's coveted Russian River Valley where the Pacific Ocean fog moderates vineyard temperatures.

Chardonnay food pairings: lobster in butter sauce, pan-fried cod, pork tenderloin, egg dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A gorgeous Cali Chardonnay from the famous Russian River Valley. Butterscotch, ripe apple, raw almond, toasted brown bread on the palate. Pairs well with roast turkey dinner. Tasted 2015 vintage in March 2018. 91 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Baked apples, pears, peaches and toasted almonds with a hint of cheese rind on the nose. Flavours are very full - fully ripe tree fruits, banana and pineapple cake. Touches of stony minerals also showing. Medium plus acidity, body and finish with some white pepper heat at the end. Pair with grilled cheese sandwiches. 89 points. - tasted March 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of pear and golden apple on the nose of this lovely Russian River Valley Chardonnay. Smooth and full bodied, with some warm buttery notes, balanced with bright citrus on the palate. Finish is medium +. Pair with scallops or lobster.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Beautiful, elegant and scrumptious. This cool climate Russian River Valley, Sonoma County chardonnay is calling for succulent crab legs. Aromas and flavours show alluring stonefruit, apple, caramelized pineapple, citrus blossom and faint spice notes. The palate boasts effortless finess. Its acidity, length and creamy texture integrate so well. This is a fantastic Chardonnay! Please enjoy with butter drenched crab or lobster meat. Tasted March 2018 by @sommsosa
Folie À Deux 2015 is a full-bodied, rich and dry Russian River Valley California Chardonnay. The nose is toasty with ripe golden apple and citrus notes. On the palate more caramel, spicy vanilla and lush ripe apple flavours. Great crowd pleaser. - Community Wine Reviews
