The Falcor 2004 Durell Vineyard Chardonnay is sourced from a southwestern Sonoma Valley vineyard that benefits from its cooling breezes and frequent fogs, allowing for slow ripening and resulting in full yet finely-flavored Chardonnay. The lavishly layered and complex 2004 vintage was well received and garnered a deserving 91 Points from Connoisseursâ€™ Guide: â€œSimply brimming with very deep, genuinely juicy, apple-like fruit and showing layer upon layer of vanilla and cream and sweet toast, the wine is at once very full in body and uncommonly well-balanced with a long and insistent finish. It is, in short, a complete and opulent Chardonnay with richness to spare, and it is just the ticket when the menu requires a wine of substance and size.â€ The Falcor Chardonnay exudes sensations of spice, butter, pear, and caramel throughout, while hints of grapefruit, mango and a seductive overlay of toasty oak carry out to the finish. A Chardonnay of power and grace, try pairing this Burgundian-styled selection with creamy pastas, grilled chicken, and smoked salmon. 100% Chardonnay. Aged in oak for 18 months. Enjoy now until 2010.
