2013 Bogle Chardonnay

January 15, 2016 - Norman Bentley

The Chardonnay Queen is always in quest of a really decent everyday Chardonnay for less than ten dollars per bottle. Her choice for most of the year of 2015, and still continuing into 2016, is the 2013 Bogle California Chardonnay. Bogle has been recognized for more than a decade as a producer of quality, value priced wines, with their California Merlot getting most of the attention. The "Wine Enthusiast" magazine rated this Chardonnay at 89, and the Chardonnay Queen has upped that score to 90. After that high praise, I asked her to give me her description and opinion of the wine, and she had this to say.

"The 2013 Bogle has the light golden color normally associated with Chardonnay that invites further inspection. The nose is predominately apple with a bit of pear, and just a hint of citrus. There is a strong flavor of apple balanced with vanilla, and a touch of peach. All flavors combine to provide a full rounded finish."

The Bogle comes in at a pleasant 13.5% of alcohol, leading to big fruit flavors, and ending in a clean crisp finish, This wine will pair well with most fowl and seafood dishes, and is definitely a good "back porch sipper".

price: $8 - $11

score - 90
