Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Product #29849 (In Stock)
Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014 Les Vigneaux Chardonnay Pays D' Oc 2014

This ripe and fresh no-oak Chardonnay comes from stony vineyards deep within the heart of France's Languedoc region, not far from the famed Mas de Daumass Gassac.  The vineyards lie in a valley northwest of Montpellier where warm sunshine promotes ripening and cool nighttime breezes from the Mediterranean help retain freshness and fruit flavors.

Fresh aromas of juicy pear, golden apple and a hints of peach and honeysuckle lead to a nice, generous, mouthful of fresh fruit, toasted nut, and honeysuckle.  The crisp, fruity, acids build from the middle to the back to give this a lip-smacking, mouthwatering, finish as pear, apple and floral notes linger nicely.  A fine all-around Chardonnay for fish, chicken, or simply sipping.

Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Product #30615 (In Stock)
Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015 Dom Bernier (Les Frères Couillaud) Chardonnay 2015

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 2015 harvest yielded plump, 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 richer and deeper than the 2014, but just as pure and mineral and delicious.

Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015 Glenbrook Chardonnay California 2015

Here's a big, bold, buttery Chardonnay at a remarkably attractive price. Big aromas of orchard fruits and buttered popcorn with accents of hazelnut, caramel, and truffle.  The texture is nicely mouth-coating and smooth, with ripe apple and pineapple fruit cloaked in rich butter and caramel.  The deep flavors flow onto a surprisingly fresh finish where fruit and salty butter flavors linger.

Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014 Product #30882 (In Stock)
Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014 Poppy Chardonnay Santa Lucia Highlands 2014

A young winery - founded in 2003 - with a pretty simple mission:  Make wine folks will enjoy!  And that's what this fun, fruit-filled, and lightly oaked Chardonnay does very well.  It's all from Poppy's vineyards in the Santa Lucia Highlands, first planted in 1972.  Warm sunshine got the grapes fully ripe and bursting with flavor.  Cool nights kept the acids fresh and held the alcohol down to a nicely balanced 13.5%.  About 30% of the wine was done in stainless steel - for fresh, bright fruit - and the rest with oak for creamy richness and complexity.

The 2014 is even better than the 90 point 2013.  You'll find plenty of richness here, with good dollops of grilled pineapple, ripe pear, golden apple, buttery oak and a round, creamy, texture. Turns more crisp in the mouth with apple and bright pear fruit and notes of green apple and butter lingering nicely.  A great party Chard for casual sipping and pretty darn versatile at table, too!

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

Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Product #31115 (In Stock)
Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015 Laurent Perrachon Beaujolais Blanc Terre De Loyse 2015

Long for fine white Burgundy for under $20?  You have to look a little further afield than in days of old, but it's still out there for the finding if you try long and hard enough.  Here's a fine example.

Laurent Perrachon has built a reputation as one of Beaujolais best independent producers and one of the few to make reds from six different Beaujolais Crus. The reds are great, but his tiny production white Beaujolais really stole our hearts.  It's 100% "Perle Blanche" (the local name for Chardonnay) grown on limestone-clay soils, harvested entirely by hand, and made in stainless steel tank.

Pretty aromas of stone fruit and apple shine with accents of crushed herb (chervil, perhaps) and a little butter.  Then rich and lightly fleshy with pear, apple, peach, and buttery flavors and a dusting of crushed stone at the end.  A nice briskness makes this refreshing on its own and it will certainly shine with roast chicken, seafood and more.  Fine wine, fine value.

Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015 Product #31659 (In Stock)
Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015 Bishops Peak Chardonnay Central Coast 2015

Back when the 2010 Bishop's Peak Chardonnay released at $15 per bottle, Wine Advocate said, "If there is a better California Chardonnay for the money, I would like to know about it," and Steve Tanzer's IWC said, "This delivers serious bang for the buck."  The only thing that's changed over the years is that the wine has gotten even better and - at least hear - not a $1 more expensive to you.

In 2015, 100% of the ripe Chardonnay fruit comes from Oliver's Vineyard in the Edna Valley - plenty sunny enough to get ripe flavors but so chilled by Pacific Ocean breezes that the wine finishes at 13.4% abv.  About half the wine ferments and ages in old (flavorless) French oak barrels - that gives the wine complexity and roundness.  And half is done in stainless steel tanks for maximum fruit and freshness.  Once blended, it's 100% delicious in a "Wow! - That's amazing!" kind of way.

"Meyer lemon, quince, white flowers and smoky minerals on the lively, incisive nose. Nervy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good clarity and a complementary subtle honeysuckle quality. Juicy and precise on the clinging finish, which strongly echoes the mineral and floral notes."  Vinous (Raynolds) 90 points

Dom Raphael Sallet Macon-uchizy 2015 Product #31446 (In Stock)
Dom Raphael Sallet Macon-uchizy 2015 Dom Raphael Sallet Macon-uchizy 2015

You’ve probably never heard of the little village of Macon-Uchizy, but it’s well known in Burgundy itself.  With its east-facing vineyards, Uchizy gives wines of fine ripeness but a touch more perfume and delicacy than is often found in the Macon.  And, Raphael Sallet is just the man to capture the region’s potential in a bottle.  Sallet is relatively unknown in this country, and you won’t find much about him in the wine press either.  That’s because he’s widely respected for quality and value within France and has never had to bother to cultivate a reputation in the US.

Taste the wine, though, and you’ll know just how good Raphael is!  Aromas of ripe apple, white peach, apple skin, green pineapple and a touch of hazelnut and crushed chervil with just a touch of salty caramel hiding underneath.  Then bright and creamy textured in the mouth with clean apple, white peach, and lemony citrus fruit accented by notes of cultured butter and dried caramel.  A note of chalky mineral shows up on the back and continues on the pretty, clean and tasty, lemon/lime and peach skin finish.

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

Butter Chardonnay California 2015 Butter Chardonnay California 2015

Yes, Butter is back – and it’s just as fine as ever!  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 fine (if small) 2015 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 5 vintages, so now’s the time to grab a full year’s supply!

Jean Marc Brocard Bourgogne Blanc Kiimmeridgien 2015 Product #31778 (In Stock)

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.

In the rich 2015 vintage Brocard crafted a perfectly ripe and utterly delicious Bourgogne Blanc with no oak.  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 white value.

Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014 Dom Feuillat-Juillot Montagny Les Crets 2014

This beautiful Chardonnay comes from 25 year-old vines growing on limestone and clay soils in a 1 hectare slice of the respected Le Crets vineyard.  Hand harvested grape bunches are destemmed and fermented and aged in tank and cask with 8 months spent on the fine lees to gain richness and depth.

Brilliantly clear and a light yellow-gold color (a hallmark of fine Montagny), the wine serves up beautiful aromas of chalky mineral, lime skin, toasted hazelnut, green tea, and garden flowers.  On the palate, it's precise, transparent, and perfectly balanced with flavors of green apple, tangy peach, toasted nut and just a hint of fresh, creamy, butter.  A touch of honey emerges with air as the peach/apple fruit gains strength, with brisk, lemony, acidity and chalky mineral showing on the crisp, generous, floral-scented, finish.  Wonderfully sophisticated and pure already, this will sing with shellfish or raw tuna now and gain more richness over the next 2-4 years.

Dom Des Malandes Chablis 2014 Product #31008 (In Stock)
Dom Des Malandes Chablis 2014 Dom Des Malandes Chablis 2014

Fresh Chardonnay crushed and fermented in steel with 6 months on the lees for salinity and breadth. Pretty aromas of white fruit, white flowers and sea shells. Crystal clear palate of crisp apple and stone fruit with citrusy undertones.  Fresh and saline through the long, clear, salty finish.  Day 2 - Sea shell and iodine on the nose then very pure and salty on the palate with green melon and citrus and apple underneath.  Very long finish of juicy fruit and wet stones.

"Top Value A slightly riper but equally fresh array of various white and yellow orchard fruit aromas also exhibits plenty of classic Chablis elements. As is usually the case this is bigger and richer with fine intensity and excellent salinity on the stony and saliva-inducing finale. This could be from nowhere other than Chablis and would also make for a higher-end, and ageworthy, house white. Recommended."Allen Meadows 89 points

"The 2014 Chablis Villages, which is aged in stainless steel over six months, has a slightly earthy, almost mulch-like bouquet that feels awkward at the moment. The palate is fresh and citrus-driven on the entry with moderate weight of fruit and then segues into a tightly-wound finish that feels there is plenty of energy coiled up. Give this Chablis another 12 months in bottle as this seems to be well crafted. (7/15 note)"Wine Advocate 89 points
