Bogle Chardonnay California 2012
"Generous aromas of fruit and toasty oak entice the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of lemon meringue, and finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel adds complexity to the fruit, allowing the flavors to sink softly into toasty notes of American oak. The finish, lingering and graceful, is coupled by a mouthwatering acidity that creates a longing for just one more sip." -Winery
Editorial Reviews for Bogle Chardonnay California
Creamy baked apple pie aromas greet the nose with subtle vanilla streaks that recall a la mode pie. There’s even a little allspice and cinnamon here to complete the picture. Gently sweet/tart on entry, this actually shows more freshness of fruit that the nose suggestion, though it is fairly ripe apple and nectarine tinged fruit. The sweetness become a bit more intrusive on the finish, which is long. filled with vanilla and wood spice nuance, and shows the fine vein of acidity used to keeps this wine in balance. Fruity, a bit simple, but fresh and easy to drink. 84pts
Four and a half glasses
I agree with other reviewers, this is a moderately oaked classic California chardonnay with apple, pear, apple pie, and fruit salad flavors that linger in a nice finish for a chard at this price. About 86 points, 3.5 glasses considering the price (about 10 bucks) I would recommend it.
This is still what I would classify as "entry-level," but it is certainly a good value. What is has: vanilla, cream, light tropical fruit, and some astringency. Good value.
External Reviews for Bogle Chardonnay California
Aromas of fruit and spice mingle and tantalize the senses as you first encounter this Chardonnay. Green apples and juicy pears give way to elegant hints of Meyer lemons, but circle back to finish ripe and refreshing on the palate. Created by aging on the lees, the rich and velvety mouthfeel takes the fruit to another level, allowing the flavors to sink softly into spicy vanilla notes of American oak. The finish, graceful as a lemon meringue, perfectly balances the wine's creaminess and acidity.
Chardonnay grapes grown in Clarksburg are known for their characteristic apple and pear aromas and flavors. Bogle winemakers have captured these refreshing and ripe notes while allowing them to develop and intensify through stainless steel fermentation. Additional grapes are vinted using the techniques of barrel fermentation, sur-lies aging and partial malolactic fermentation, which creates an elegant counterpart to the fresh fruit with tones of spicy vanilla and nutmeg. The creamy mouthfeel adds just the final touch on the finish, reminiscent of an apple and pear galette. - Winery
