Bouchard Pere & Fils Bourgogne Reserve Chardonnay 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Bourgogne|
|Brand||Bouchard Pere & Fils|
Bouchard's 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay Reserve saw a mere 5% oak this year, with the rest maturing in tank, but it's nonetheless a generous and exotic wine, bursting with aromas of musky peach, ripe orchard fruit and orange oil. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with ripe acids and a fragrant finish.
The 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay Réserve, which had been bottled, has a simple citrus lemon and green apple nose. The straightforward palate leads into a slightly nutty, nutmeg-tinged finish. Fine.
