2020 cracked 90-points from Wine Enthusiast, marking this as an easy call for a weeknight treat or a Sunday picnic kind of Chardonnay. Bouchard Aine & Fils dates back two centuries, and this house takes a lot of pride in its wine at every price point. This Chardonnay overdelivers on every level, from the generous nose of nectarine and acacia to the elegant, balanced palate of exotic fruit flavors with a hint of earth and savory spice.
White grapefruit, lime and white pepper aromas introduce this Chardonnay. The mouthwatering palate is lemony, also offering white peach, green apple and tinges of apricot. Lime-laced acidity keeps things juicy, loaded with zippy acidity.
