91 Points — 2010 Bouchaine Estate Chardonnay — Wine Enthusiast

“A delicious wine. Great to see veteran Bouchaine performing at such a high level. Shows real Chardonnay character, with a creamy texture housing flavors of Meyer lemon tarts, vanilla and buttered toast, brightened with lively acidity.” — Steve Heimoff, March 2013

90 Points — 2009 Bouchaine Carneros Pinot Noir — Wine & Spirits Magazine

“Like Bouchaine’s Gee Vineyard wine, this emphasizes earthy root scents against rich, dark cherry flavors (it brings the scent of fresh-dug carrots to mind). The earthiness of the tannins dominates the wine at first, but that shifts toward a sleek, more amiable refinement with air. For the dark meat of game birds, such as grilled quail.” — Wine & Spirits Magazine, April 2013

Gold — Reserve Class Champion — 2010 Bouchaine Bouche d'Or

Bouchaine received top honors at the 2013 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo International Wine Competition. The 2010 Bouchaine Bouche d'Or Late Harvest Chardonnay took the Gold Medal and Reserve Class Champion in the Other Sweet Wine class.

Chairman's Award: Best of Class — 2012 Bouchaine Las Brisas Vineyard Riesling 

“A riesling with hints of apple and pear with a sweeter balance.” — 2013 Riverside International Wine Competition
