Once a container for only the most downscale plonk, the humble bag-in-a-box is winning increasing acceptance as a vessel for good-quality varietal wines. There's no doubt the savings on packaging makes for a bargain. And an argument can be made -- as Boho does -- that boxes are more eco-friendly than bottles. This well-made chardonnay is the equivalent of four bottles of wine priced at $6 each. It's not an ultra-complex beverage, but it's clean and fresh, with good acidity and fruit-to-oak balance. Altogether a most useful little wine, with no fear of cork taint.
