Bouchard Finlayson Missionvale Chardonnay 1999

Bottled after four months in barrel with 30% new barrel compliment. Clean, pure, vibrant, powerful, yet delicate with subtle pear, lemon and cantaloupe flavours. Not overly full bodied but with an incredibly well balanced finish which is quite racy and morish!

in the cellar : Domaine grapes produced on the vineyards finest Chardonnay "terroir". Harvested during the first week in February with excellent fruit arriving at the cellar. The grape sugars of less than 22'B illustrate the wine making philosophy of not producing rich overripe Chardonnays but rather capturing the style of wines which will age well as practised in the classic Burgundian white wine preparations.
