Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml Product #31588 (In Stock)
Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml Macrostie Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014 375ml

Steve MacRostie creates this classy Chardonnay from grapes grown in some of the most exciting regions of California's Sonoma Coast.  Sangiacomo and Hi Vista vineyards in Carneros give richness and texture.  Several Russian River Valley sites - including sites owned by the Dutton and Martinelli familes - give lift, purity and vibrancy.  And MacRostie's own Wildcat Mountain Vyd just west of Carneros adds fantastic complexity and length.

All of the fruit is pressed whole cluster (without destemming) to maintain clarity and freshness.  About 90% ferments and ages in (20% new) French oak for more richness and body while 20% stays in stainless steel to retain crispness and cut.

"Features a delicious core of vibrant grapefruit and lemon-laced tangerine and white peach notes, with zesty acidity that keeps the flavors fresh and jumping."Wine Spectator 90 points

Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Product #31842 (In Stock)
Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014 Varner Chardonnay Foxglove 2014

As always, an amazing amount of pure, no-oak, Chardonnnay for the money.

"The highlight in this range from Foxglove, the 2014 Chardonnay packs a serious punch for the money. Bright, juicy and exuberant, the Foxglove Chardonnay will thrill readers looking for a budget-priced Chardonnay. Lemon peel, white flowers and mint meld together in a rich, beautifully layered Chardonnay long on class. Aging in steel and blocked malolactic fermentation keep the flavors bright, but there is no shortage of depth or intensity. This is a fabulous wine, especially considering its modest price." Vinous (Galloni) 90 points

"Made by some of the best Chardonnay winemakers in California, Jim and Bob Varner, the value-priced 2014 Chardonnay released under the Foxglove label sports a light gold color to go with exotic notes of pineapples, melon, citrus blossom, spice and hints of green herbs. Supple, forward and straight-up delicious on the palate, with no hard edges and a clean, classy profile, it's a steal at the price and will drink nicely for a year or three."Wine Advocate 90 points

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

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 Product #32461 (In Stock)
Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2016

The folks at Talley have really upped their game with the 2016 Bishop's Peak Chardonnay.  All of the fruit comes from the famous  Oliver's Vineyard (the Talley version of this sells for $50), blending a bit of barrel fermented juice from the big wine into the stainless steel base.  Lovely aromas of lemon, white peach and jasmine lead to flavors of creamy orange, juicy pear and lime zest.  Crisp and refreshing with a touch of chalk at the end.  An outstanding value. 

"(raised in a combination of stainless steel tanks and neutral French oak barrels) Limpid yellow. Fresh pear, melon, orange zest and a hint of chamomile on the nose; a subtle hint of leesiness emerges slowly. Juicy and round on the palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors accented by a smoky nuance. Silky and focused on the finish, which shows good lift, spicy cut, and very good, floral-driven persistence." Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

The 2016 edition of "baby Rombauer" is great again. Full-throttle aromas of ripe pear, golden apple, spicy oak, vanilla and creamy butter.  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. A touch of citrus acidity adds freshness and balance. A buttery treat!

Dom J-C Thevenet St Veran Clos De l'Ermitage VV 2015 Dom J-C Thevenet St Veran Clos De l'Ermitage VV 2015

Saint Veran lacks nearby Pouilly Fuisse's fame, but the wines can be even better (and better value).  This is from 70 year-old vines in a fine "monopole" vineyard on south-facing slopes of chalky, limestone, soil.  At once  zesty and rich, there's nice weight  on the palate and layers of orchard fruits, hazelnut, butter and wet stone.  Finishes long, deep, and very refreshing with fruit and nut notes lingering.

Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015 Product #32296 (In Stock)
Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015 Chanson Pere Et Fils Vire Clesse 2015

Good value in white Burgundy is all too hard to find these days, making this classy, stylish and very fresh Chardonnay from the Maconnaise AOC of Vire-Clesse very exciting indeed.  It's from what is arguably the best part of the Macon, a cooler site with more limestone and more than a little in common with the Cote d'Or to the north.  Chanson was among the very first to bottle AOC Vire-Clesse following its creation in 1988 and makes one of the most classic examples - ripe, rich, and dry.  In 2015 there's just a touch more depth, richness, and power than usual, making this a joy to sip and a stunning match with scallops or lobster.

"Very pure, this white delivers expressive aromas and flavors of peach, apple, spice and oyster shell. Lingers on the finish, with elements of spice and brown butter. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 91 points

"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Much deeper, riper and richer than the basic 2014 Mendoza Chardonnay, offering sweet stone fruit and apple flavors lifted by saline minerality. This dense Chardonnay shows glyceral warmth but finishes with noteworthy lift."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Product #32542 (In Stock)
Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016 Sbragia Chardonnay Home Ranch Dry Creek 2016

Ed Sbragia made his name – and the winery’s fame – during a 32 year tenure as Beringer’s head “winemaster.” This 100% Chardonnay comes from Ed’s “Home Ranch” vineyard in Dry Creek Valley, just 1 mile from Dry Creek and the Russian River. The ripe fruit is hand harvested, sorted, and then fermented and aged “sur lie” in French oak (just 10% new).  The result is a fresh, vibrant, wine that delivers plenty of Russian River richness in the form of a creamy texture and generous apple, pear, and tropical fruit.  Wine Spectator under-rates this a bit, but is correct on one thing – as fine as it is today, it will be even more delicious a few months from now!

“Bold, rich and spicy, with a juicy core of melon, fig, green apple and citrus flavors, shaded by light spicy oak. Young and edgy, this can stand a little cellar time.” Wine Spectator 89 points

A really charming and delicious Chardonnay from just outside Charlottesville, this is all estate grown fruit aged in tank and a mix of French, American, and Hungarian oak. Punches all the Chardonnay buttons - crisp apple, ripe pear, toasted hazelnut, and just a kiss of oak - but isn't buttery or heavy at just 12.5% abv.  Finishes with fine energy and a touch of sweet spice.

Center of Effort Chardonnay "Effort" Edna Valley 2015 Product #32151 (In Stock)
Center of Effort Chardonnay Center of Effort Chardonnay

While the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley certainly have their charms, we’re fast becoming convinced that California’s best Chardonnays come from the high hills of the Santa Cruz Mountains (think Mt Eden) and the cool-bordering-on-cold Edna Valley.  If you’ve tried Brian Talley’s Edna Valley Bishop’s Peak and Talley Chardonnays, then you’ll have a good idea of what to expect here – the perfect blend of rich, ripe, fruit and pure, zesty, freshness.  We think this stunner from organicly grown fruit with a blend of concrete, French oak and acacia wood aging may be the most delicious all-around Chardonnay we’ve seen in years. You should try it.

"A solid, compelling bottling for an entry-level wine, this was aged in a combination of French oak, acacia wood and concrete, and shows clean Gala apple and brioche aromas. Grippy tension and sizzling acidity fire up the palate, bringing the wine's apple and peach flavors to the fore, sprinkled with savory sea salt and spice."Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2015 Luigi Baudana Dragon Langhe Bianco 2015

A stunner. Let's forget that this is mainly Chardonnay because the experience here is more about "Piemonte" and "Yum" than Chard.  Clean, fresh aromas and loads of citrus and orchard fruit flavors that get lift from a dose of zingy citrus and a hint of slate. An exotic and delicious blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and a tiny amount of Riesling for lime zest freshness.

"This is delicate aromatically, boasting floral, peach, apple and lemon notes. There’s more weight on the palate, where the peach and apple flavors reign, playing out with citrus and spice accents. Shows fine harmony and texture. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Nascetta and Riesling. Drink now through 2020. 1,800 cases made."Wine Spectator 90 points

A terrific value in single-vineyard Chardonnay from the hills of the Cote de Beaune.  Both aromas and flavors are satisfyingly rich and creamy, with generous dollops of ripe pear, juicy apple, and accents of fresh butter and chalk.  There's nice Burgundy complexity here, but it doesn't distract from the pure fun and deliciousness.  Drink now and over the next 2-3 years.

Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Product #32238 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016

Jean Paul Thibert's Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse has been a store favorite for a few years now - but for the second vintage in a row his Pouilly Fuisse completely blows the doors off.   Our first thought on tasting this:  There's a lot of $40 Chassagne-Montrachet that's not nearly this good.

The wine greets you with gorgeous aromas of ripe orchard fruits - apple, peach, pear - with accents of lemon, hazelnut, fresh butter and white flowers.  Then this beauty delivers an absolutely classic white Burgundy palate of grilled pineapple, peach, pear, and lemon fruit with hazelnut, creme fraiche, and hints of salted caramel coming up as the wine warms.  The oak is well-integrated, the texture is rich and creamy and mouth-coating and the finish long and fresh, leaving hazelnut, mint, and tangerine flavors lingering. Real white Burgundy quality and satisfaction here at the price under most mid-range California Chardonnays (and, if you like Cali Chard, you’ll want to try this!)  “Burgundy” and “Bargain” don’t show up in the same sentence, or glass, often.  Don’t miss this one!
