Vintages Wine Picks June 21, 2008

White Wine

Boyar Estates Blueridge X.R. Chardonnay 2004, Bulgaria, Bulgaria: Vintages Wine Panel: Since the collapse of the Soviet union, Boyar Estates has grown into one of the most dynamic, quality-focused wineries in southeastern Europe. This barrel-aged Chardonnay offers terrific value with ripe pear, apple, vanilla and toast flavors and aromas. Dry, soft and creamy. My note: A fantastic value. Simple but pleasant but not too oaky. Ripe pear fruit notes. Pair with: roasted chicken stuffed with lemon halves. 73197 13% D 750 mL  $11.95 Score: 86/100. June 21, 2008 Best Value White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
