WOW: EXCLUSIVE - Falcor Bon Jus!

WOW: Wine of the Week EXCLUSIVE: Falcor Bon Jus!

Falcor Bon Jus 2008
It pays to know people...wink, wink! is SO pleased to be the very first retailer outside of the winery (and the ONLY one online) to offer Falcor's newest endeavor and it is TRULY "Bon Jus!"

This White Rhone blend is our new Spring and Summer favorite!  Make sure to get this special blend while it lasts.  If there is one thing that we know about Falcor, it is that they are always keeping their portfolio (and us!) on our toes!

Winery Notes

"Michael Bee and Jim Peterson began working with noted winemaker Ray Coursen of Elyse to create the wines for Falcor in 1995. Ray’s long-term relationships with growers have enabled him to source some of the finest fruit from prime Napa vineyards for Falcor’s limited-production wines. Ray selects vineyard locations best suited to each variety, ensures that his growers practice meticulous vineyard management techniques and walks the vineyards constantly throughout harvest, picking only at the peak of ripeness. The resulting wines are fruit-forward, balanced by oak, with superior nuance and complexity. Our goal is to make wines that are in balance, with no one taste element dominating the others. Wines that are in balance are very drinkable on release and, if properly aged, will retain this balance while adding additional taste complexities." - Winery Notes

Falcor Bon Jus 2008 Tasting Notes

"‘Bon Jus’ or ‘Good Jus’ is a blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Rousanne from the Naggiar Vineyard in the Sierra Foothills.  This wine is intensely perfumed with expansive aromas of poached pear, melon and honeysuckle. While rich and densely textured, it finishes with refreshing acidity." - Winery Notes
Blend: 50% Viognier, 25% Marsanne, 25% Rousanne

Falcor Bon Jus 2008 Pairings

Bon Jus can be paired with a warm fire, loved one, a creamy St. Andre or triple cream brie and a fresh baguette. It’s unique PiƱa Colada and apricot flavors make it also pair very well with an apricot tart or wood fired apricot and mascarpone galette.
