Mission Briefing

Codename:

Beck'n BOGO

Our Operatives go crazy for our Buy One - Get One events! Today’s affordable Chardonnay delivers even more value with our BOGO offering. For every bottle that you purchase at $21.99, you can buy another one at just $0.07 (seven cents).

This delightful and very highly recommended wine took our tasting panel by surprise! Approachable, elegant and light, this is a perfect winter holiday wine that could be served with a wide range of cuisine.

Boasting tremendous value for the price, this balanced wine could be a wonderful daily-drinker for lovers of approachable white wines.

Packaged in a very pricey Burgundy bottle, anyone that you served the wine to would assume that you paid much more for it. That goes for anyone that sipped the wine, too!

Pair this wine early in the meal, with fruit, hard cheeses or a seafood salad, or with a meal of poultry, fish or pork.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Shimmery light golden hues at the very heart of the wine. At the very edge of the wine, a slight green tinge provides a glinting highlight.

Smell:

Bright and clean, with fresh and soft citrus, light pear, under-ripe pineapple, honeydew, and a subtle hint of vanilla. As the wine warms slightly, it really opens up and reveals creamy aromas of butterscotch and toasted caramel.

Taste:

Delicate and fresh with citrus peel, Meyer lemon, and a vanilla roundness. Allow the wine to warm a bit and you will be rewarded with better, fuller and more realistic fruit flavors.

Finish:

Long, bright and sweet flavors increase after the wine leaves the palate. As the fruit fades, a soft slate minerality remains.

Pairing:

Enjoy this delicious Chardonnay with a wide variety of foods, from seafood to roasted chicken to an assortment of fruits and hard cheeses.
