Bouchaine Carneros Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2007 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)

This wine was sent complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog in exchange for a review.

Tasting notes:

A nice beam of citrus on the nose with melon and vanilla cream accents

Full bodied and nicely textured on the palate

Smooth finish of lemon, floral notes, and butterscotch


Here's a very nice, well rounded Carneros Chardonnay. It has bright citrus and acidity that is well integrated with the softer flavors such as vanilla cream, butterscotch, and floral notes. This wine retails for around $30 and is a solid "step up" from the rows of $10-20 California Chardonnays. Part of its magic is that it has a sense of place, with a true Carneros taste and feel to it. Raise a glass!
