Bouchard Finlayson Auction Reserve Chardonnay 2012

As much as we try to keep Pinot Noir our flagship, Chardonnay appears to say ‘catch me’. Chardonnay has magic and seductive powers wooing producers and consumers on all corners of the globe. This vintage presented superb quality fruit produced on high density plantings, picked at optimum ripeness and pressed ‘whole bunch’ to release purity and length of palate. Matured ‘sur lie’ for seven months in best French barrels.
