Macon-Chardonnay Bouchard Aine & Fils

blog 136

Bouchard are a well regarded producer from Beaune in Burgundy, where they have been producing wines (pinot noir and chardonnay) since 1750. This wine has pedigree… I liked this, though at £10 I suspect you are paying a premium for their name and label, but I didn’t feel ripped off.

Tasting notes: Pale colour. Initially some mineral, citrus and peach notes. Creamy, oaky notes. Dry.
