Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Product #28457 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013 Val De Salis Chardonnay Pays d'Oc 2013

The Gau family is unusual for Languedoc growers – they make only “single varietal” wines rather than the field blends of Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault and Syrah common all around them.  This 100% Chardonnay thrives in the rocky soils and warm climate here, and delivers lovely aromas of ripe pear and apple with pretty floral accents.  The flavors start crisp and refreshing and get even better with a little air, with sweet Bosc pear, peach and apricot flavors gaining complexity from the barest hint of caramel and mineral.  No oak here to interfere with the fruit, and we suspect a little Viognier has snuck into the Chardonnay vines, giving this much more perfume and peach than normally found this far south.  A luscious mouthful of wine with a crisp, clean, finish that will delight at a party and make you think of springtime when sipped on its own.

Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Product #28208 (In Stock)
Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013 Lismore Range Chardonnay 2013

Just about the best value we’ve found in classy New World Chardonnay this year.  A California-based "negotiant" took advantage of the ripe 2013 harvest in Australia to purchase beautifully ripe Chardonnay and have it aged 5 months in French oak barrels.  Then - to keep costs down - it's shipped to the USA in an airtight bladder and bottled in California.

Leaving that all aside, it's flat out delicious.  Juicy apple and pear fruit take center stage with accents of spice, salty caramel, and just a touch of butter.  Rich and creamy, but with air it gets a bit more juicy with crisp apple livening the finish, but the pear, caramel, toasted nut, and hint of butter keep pumping through from first sip to last. A stunning value in a great everyday Chardonnay for parties, sipping, or most any food.

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2014 Product #29695 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2014 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2014

The brothers Couillaud are among the most outstanding winegrowers of the western Loire Valley.  And while their Muscadet is terrific, it was this complex and distinctive Chardonnay that captured our attention.  The 2014 harvest yielded nicely ripe Chardonnay fruit with plenty of heft and balancing acidity.  They fermented about 8% in barrel and the rest in concrete tanks, allowing all of the wine to go through malolactic fermentation.  The result is an amazingly rich, creamy, almost Meursault-like Chardonnay with the zesty cut and minerality of a top Chablis.  Honey, cream, chalk, and tart green apple aromas and flavors are delivered with nice energy and drive and linger on a long, mouthwatering, brilliantly complex finish.  A tad more cut than the 2013, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014 Product #29215 (In Stock)
Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014 Man Family Wines Chardonnay Padstal 2014

As Robert Parker said reviewing Man’s last releases, “This winery has some fabulous values and should be high on the shopping lists of frugal consumers.”  The 2014 Chardonnay is a delight, bursting with cut apple, pear, pineapple and lime zest aromas and flavors with a very light touch of honeysuckle and cream.  Even with all the boisterous fruit, this is crisp, clean, and dry with a savory touch of smoke on the finish.  The secret here is fantastic fruit fermented in tank, with about 15% spending time in new American oak barrels for 4 months to season them before they’re used for reds.  You won’t taste “oak,” but the time in wood gives this snappy Chardonnay a bit more depth than you find in all tank examples.  Great with all kinds of food and also as a solo sipper.  A Chardonnay even a Sauvignon Blanc drinker will love!

Annefield Vineyards Chardonnay Virginia 2012 Product #28956 (In Stock)
Annefield Vineyards Chardonnay Virginia 2012 Annefield Vineyards Chardonnay Virginia 2012

Honestly, too much Virginia Chardonnay tries too hard.  Annefield has dropped the pretension and turned out a creamy, rich, Chardonnay that's actually fun to drink!  Apple, stone fruit, and a little grilled pineapple sit at the core with accents of honeysuckle, caramel, and sour apple candy.  There's a touch of minerality and fine acidity for support and a good dose of buttery luxury, too.  Ripe fruit and all used oak help, and the price is a steal for Chardonnay this joyful - especially from Virginia!

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.

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.

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

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.

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
