Baronne du Chatelard Bourgogne Blanc is a delightful discovery for Chardonnay lovers who prefer their wine without the butterscotch! What's especially interesting about this new wine gem is its innovative packaging. It comes in an adorable wooden Wineberry Box made of Bordelais oak and it holds 3 liters of wine-the equivalent of 4 standard 750ml bottles. Perfect for parties and summer picnics because it's so lightweight and durable-and amazingly compact! It's also a great everyday house wine, and you don't need to worry about 3 liters of wine going bad. Once the tap is opened the wine will last for six weeks in its airtight bag inside the box! What's not to like? Just remember that all boxed wines are meant to be consumed within 12 months, so drink up!
Baronne du Chatelard Bourgogne Blanc is 100% Chardonnay with a color of soft amber-gold. On the nose it offers uncomplicated aromas of pure Chardonnay--pear, apple and brioche. Soft and plump with medium-full body and nice balance, it shows flavors of green apples, pears and hazelnuts. This Chardonnay is crisp in the palate with a round, lingering finish.
Enjoy Baronne du Chatelard Bourgogne Blanc with your picnic baskets and with grilled chicken, baked swordfish, steamers, Cobb salad and goat cheese.
Opening instructions: Place the Wineberry Box upside down and slide open the bottom wood panel. Remove tape covering hole in front panel and push spigot through the hole with tap facing toward bottom of box. Slide bottom panel closed and turn box upright. When ready to open, simply remove plastic seal from spigot. Place wine glass under spigot and lift up on two side buttons of tap to dispense wine. Swirl and enjoy!
Recycling suggestion: Wineberry boxes are a nearly perfect fireplace fire starter! Just stuff 2-3 pages of wadded newspaper into a box with the bottom panel removed, stack it on its side on the andirons and light through the hole with a match. It sustains a beautiful fire for 10 minutes or more as you add logs on top!
