For anyone searching beyond overly-oaked Chardonnays, this one will surely delight and satisfy!
This wine comes from vines dating to Bouchaine’s original plantings in 1981, growing on our windswept Napa Valley Carneros hillsides. It's a true expression of Chardonnay—bright, citrusy flavors graced with only the merest hint of oak. Shows classic Carneros lime and grapefruit styling. A hint of vanilla graces the mid-palate. Its fruit flavors, bright acidity, notable texture (a hallmark characteristic of Carneros Chardonnay), harmonize in an elegant, stylish wine. Straw gold in color, it dances in the glass like sunlight.
