Cool Factor

A

Value Chardonnay is becoming an endangered species. Bogle always delivers value for money.

Value Grade

A

Bogle has proven themselves to be a reliable producer of fresh, well-made, and solid wines sold at prices that make wine a lifestyle for many, not a drink for an occasion. That's a good thing.

Analysis

This wine, like most of the Bogle wines, wears the California appellation meaning that it is sourced from more than one appellation in the state. The Bogle Chardonnay is crafted from grapes grown in Clarksburg, Monterey, and Lodi. This Bogle Chardonnay is fermented in stainless steel and then rested in new American oak for a period of nine months. The result is a bright and vibrant Chardonnay with a supporting note of toasted oak. 88 points.

How to Enjoy

Serve chilled at happy hour and drink alongside with roasted chicken and grilled vegetables.
