An excellent Russian River Chardonnay at a very attractive price.

Pineapple, passion fruit, buttered toast, and green apple flavors linger nicely on the bright, clean, finish. Rock-solid.

"Golden color and tight, bright acidity characterize this wine that tingles in balanced flavors of pear and lemon. It also offers a touch of orange blossom on the nose and caramel on the finish."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012 Product #28702 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2012

As Robert Parker has often said about Foxglove Chardonnay, "These are among the finest values readers will find anywhere in the world." In the outstanding 2012 vintage, this is once again a no-oak, no-malo, Chardonnay from Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. Generous flavors of honeysuckle, lemon, pear, and yellow apple swirl through a richly textured wine that snaps into focus on the bright, crisp, finish.  Delicious stuff and fine, fine, value.

"The 2012 Chardonnay Foxglove is my favorite of the bunch and gives up clean and classy white peach, apple blossom and subtle spice in its medium-bodied, juicy and delicious style. Brought up in stainless steel, it’s hard to beat at the price and should be purchased by the case for drinking over the coming year or so."Wine Advocate 89 points

Dom Chene Macon Villages 2014 Product #29733 (In Stock)
Dom Chene Macon Villages 2014 Dom Chene Macon Villages 2014

The Chêne family has been growing grapes and making wine in Macon for five generations, but traditionally sold all of their crop to the local co-op.  In 1999, Cedric Chêne decided that his vineyards and hard work deserved better and began bottling and selling his own wine as Domaine Chêne Pere et Fils - and we're glad he did!

This 100% Chardonnay from sites just north of the town of Macon serves up pretty aromas of lemon custard, fresh orchard fruit, and a touch of toasted hazelnut.  Rich and creamy in texture, the gentle pear fruit is lifted by a squirt of lemony acidity and gets added complexity from notes of fresh mint and hazelnut.  Finished bright and clean with mint and lemon curd flavors lingering nicely.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2014 Product #29881 (In Stock)

As always, the folks at Talley do a fine job with their "no oak" Bishop's Peak program. More aromatic than many inexpensive Chardonnays, this features aromas of ripe golden apples and pears.  On the palate, no oak and no malolactic fermentation keep it fresh and crisp, with flavors of more tart green apples and a little citrus zest.  A great everyday Chardonnay for light poultry dishes or sipping before a meal.

Jean-Marc Brocard Bourgogne Blanc Kiimmeridgien 2013 Product #29669 (In Stock)
Jean-Marc Brocard Bourgogne Blanc Kiimmeridgien 2013 Jean-Marc Brocard Bourgogne Blanc Kiimmeridgien 2013

Juilien Brocard sources the Chardonnay for this crackling value white from the Kimmeridgien soils of Auxerrois, just west of Chablis.  Named for the Dorset, England, town where it was first cataloged, Kimmeridgien soil consists of layers of dense chalk and softer clay encrusted with tiny fossilized sea shells (you’ll find a stylized drawing of an Ammonite shell right on the label). Offering excellent drainage and plenty of mineral nutrients for the vines, Kimmeridgien soils give the best wines of Champagne, Sancerre, and Chablis lovely ripeness with unique accents of flinty, salty, minerality.

Despite losing one-third of his crop in the challenging 2013 growing season, Brocard has crafted a perfectly ripe and utterly delicious Bourgogne Blanc with no oak to refresh you during summer’s heat and delight with seafood all year long.  Clean, fresh, aromas of citrus peel, green apple, flint and seashell really pull you in for a sip.  You’ll find a vibrant, but nicely rich, mouthful of yellow apple, peach, lemon and lime zest fruit enlivened by juicy acids and salty stone minerality.  The texture is smooth, with no hard edges, and the lovely fruit and wet stone flavors linger on very nicely.  The weight of Macon, a touch of Central Coast Chardonnay fruit, and a stony Chablis finish combine perfectly in this seductive summer white value.

Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml Product #29453 (In Stock)
Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml Dom Louis Michel Chablis 2013 375ml

Half Bottle. Guillaume Michel crafts his “village” level Chablis from seven different Chablis vineyards located on both sides of the river.  The organically farmed vines are up to 50 years of age and produce clean, ripe, succulent fruit – even in difficult vintages like 2013.  From the classic green-tinged color and modest 12.5% alcohol, you might expect this to be sharp or green tasting, but even with no oak to hide any flaws, it’s a lovely marriage of generous, ripe green and yellow apple, tangerine, and lemon/lime fruit and Chablis classic cut and salty stone minerality.  An easy wine to enjoy all by itself or with a wide range of foods, but you certainly will love it with traditional Chablis matches like oysters and clams!

"Tangerine, spice and hazelnut overtones emerge from Louis Michel's 2013 Chablis. This textured, expressive, mid-weight Chablis is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years."  Antonio Galloni 87-88 points

"A more complex nose features notes of exotic dried yellow fruit, white flowers and a whiff of sea breeze. There is more volume and better punch to the delicious, clean and somewhat drier finish. This too will be approachable young."Allen Meadows 86-89 points

Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013

Always a delicious value, the 2013 Catena Chardonnay may just be the best ever - and that's saying something for a wine that scores 90-93 points pretty much every year.  A blend of oaked and tank-aged wine, it crackles with fantastic fresh apple, pear, peach and pineapple fruit framed by notes of crushed mint and toasted hazlenut.  The vivid fruit pumps on through the juicy finish where Burgundy-like minerality and creamy toast notes linger.  Fantastic stuff.

Butter Chardonnay California 2014 Product #29533 (In Stock)
Butter Chardonnay California 2014 Butter Chardonnay California 2014

Yes, Butter is back – and it’s the best Butter yet!  Former Rombauer winemaker Rob Lloyd and his partners a JaM wines have turned out another full-throttle, frankly oaked, and richly butter Chardonnay in the outstanding 2014 vintage.  As always, you’ll find big aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, spicy oak, vanilla and creamy butter.  And, the big flavors of super-ripe tropical and orchard fruits, smoke, spice, vanilla bean and still more fresh butter coat your palate with a richly textured, smooth, opulent texture.  What’s new is a touch more vibrant acidity from front to back and a newfound sense of delineation and clarity to the flavors.  More of a “baby Rombauer” than ever! 

It’s a fun, butterball, of a sipper and party wine, and will be a happy partner with everything from fish to poultry and salads at table.  But, this has sold our early in each of the past 4 vintages, so now’s the time to grab a full year’s supply!

Dom Des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011 Half Bottle Dom Des Malandes Chablis 1er Cru Fourchaume 2011 Half Bottle

HALF BOTTLE.  From 40+ year-old vines in the heart of Fourchaume, proper, harvested the first 3 days of September, just before the rain that caused so many problems with rot for others.  The fruit came in just under 12.5% alcohol with vibrant acidity that benefited from 12 months in neutral oak.  As estate manager Lyne Marchive says of her 2011s overall, “It's classic in style but not unduly austere plus it should drink well early if someone prefers it."  Don’t miss the chance to get some in half-bottles and magnum, too!

"A very slight chew to give texture, plus plenty of bright green apple fruit. Great intensity on the mid-palate – certainly has ageing potential."  Jancis Robinson Purple Pages 17/20 points

"Sweet Spot Outstanding. A dense nose of ripe white orchard fruit, floral notes and a hint of tidal pool character precedes the very rich and suave flavors that possess good power and excellent depth and length. This is a relatively big yet refined Fourchaume that displays plenty of mid-palate dry extract."Allen Meadows 90-93 points

Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013 Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2013

The 2012 was the best Macrostie Chard we'd had in years - but the 2013 is better still.  From vineyards in Carneros, the Russian River Valley, and Wildcat Mountain.  Rich and lush, with plenty of sweet pineapple and tropical fruit, a lash of butter, and bright green apple acids to hold everything in balance. Our favorite value so far from the outstanding 2013 California Chardonnay crop.

Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Blanc Revillir 2013 Product #29796 (In Stock)
Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Blanc Revillir 2013 Dom de l'Eveche Bourgogne Blanc Revillir 2013

Many of you have enjoyed Vincent and Sylvie Jouissier’s unoaked Bourgogne Chardonnay in the past, but we found this oak-aged cuvee even more exciting.  Ripe Chardonnay from vineyards scattered across the Cote Chalonnais gets a cool, slow, fermentation in tank and then 10 months gaining in French oak (one-third new) for more complexity and an added dose of richness.

It’s a lovely wine to just look at in the glass, with crystalline clarity and a shimmering yellow-gold color.  Classic white Burgundy aromas of ripe pear and Golden Delicious apple framed by a touch of vanilla, butter, toasted hazelnut and sweet herb.  In the mouth, there’s wonderful purity and clarity to the generous flavors of sweet apple, fresh lemon, hazelnut, spice and mint.  The texture is silky and fresh and the vivid flavors dance easily across your palate, leaving mouthwatering notes of lemon zest, Granny Smith, Key lime, and a kiss of salty stone lingering behind.  The freshness, vivid flavors, and silky feel of the wine make this a wonderful warm weather refresher, but there’s sneaky complexity here and enough structure to support 3-5 years development if you want to wait.

The benchmark white Beaujolais is very Burgundy-like in 2013, with a rich Chardonnay texture that just gets better and more luxurious with air.

"Vibrant citrus fruit and melon aromas are sharpened by a hint of quinine and pick up a smoky nuance with air. Round and seamless on the palate, offering pliant honeydew and nectarine flavors and a refreshingly bitter lemon pith quality that comes up slowly. Clings with good intensity on the finish, leaving a note of sweet butter behind."   Vinous 88 points

A distinct step up from the very fine (WA 89 point) 2013, this is a rich, dense, Macon with fine length and a satisfying finish.  From 30 year-old vines and made entirely in stainless steel, it shows rich pear and apple scents that get richer and broader with air.  Clean, fresh, flavors of pear, apple, and lemon curd flow easily into the bright, pure, finish.  A very fine white Burgundy value.

Dom Cordier Vire Clesse Vielles Vignes 2012 Product #29347 (In Stock)
Dom Cordier Vire Clesse Vielles Vignes 2012 Dom Cordier Vire Clesse Vielles Vignes 2012

The Vire Clesse appellation was created in 1999 in recognition that this limestone-rich stretch of vineyards was of higher quality than most Macon sites, if not quite up to the level of Pouilly Fuisse.  By law, all Vire Clesse wines must be bone dry, giving the best examples (like this one) an almost Chablis-like cut and vibrancy.

This beauty opens with a wonderful saline nose of crushed rock, crisp apple, stone fruit and fresh mint.  The palate is sophisticated, luscious, and quite complex, with layered flavors of apple, apricot, and pineapple fruit framed by more mineral and a touch of lees.  Finishes pure, clean, and long with salty caramel, fresh fruit, and white flower notes and a mouthwatering burst of fresh pineapple with a touch of chalk left behind.  Utterly delicious and compelling now and for the next 2-3 years.

“The 2012 Viré Clessé Vieilles Vignes has a well-defined, precise bouquet with fragrant white peach and persimmon notes that remain focused and taut. The palate is well-defined and crisp with brisk acidity and very fine tension to the slightly austere finish that deserves a few months in bottle. This is well-crafted and might well repay just a few months in bottle if you choose to do so. Drink 2014-2019.”Wine Advocate 89 points

Dom Vincent Dampt Chablis 2014 Product #29868 (In Stock)

From one of the best "under the radar" houses in Chablis, this is just another in a string of village wines Burghound always rates "Sweetspot Outstanding." White and yellow orchard fruits get lift from notes of sea breeze saltiness and wet stone minerality.  Lovely tension between the ripe fruit flavors and zingy acids and notes of chalk.  As Burghound says, "Given the modest prices that the Dampt family wines typically sell for they represent screaming values."
