Chloe Chardonnay 2013 – Sonoma County

Folie a Deaux

Tonight I’m trying one of my new “box” meals from Hello Fresh.  This is one of those companies that promises to send you all of the fresh ingredients, right sized for two people or four, complete with cooking instructions.  Well, I can’t start cooking without a glass of wine, can I?  So read with me while I try this Chloe Chardonnay made from grapes from Sonoma County.

There are nuances of oak and vanilla in the nose.  This is not a big, bold, complex chardonnay but the mouth feel is a real pleasure.  Lots of legs on this wine, with a beautiful, light golden color.  With a creamy, silky finish, this is a sophisticated and refined wine.  It is a delicious wine to sip all by itself or with food.

I paid $11.69, on sale at Safeway, for this wine.  13.5% in alcohol.  Enjoy!
