• Chardonnay blended with white Rhône and aromatic varieties, equally bold and intriguing—a luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin is balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar. Rhone-style white blend. We 91pts, WW 90pts.
  • The 2018 Chardonnay comes 95% from Carneros and 5% from Napa Valley. Barrel fermented in 33% new oak, it spent eight months on the lees, and 18% went through malolactic. It was bottled June 1, 2019. Slowly, it reveals very pretty poached pears, apple pie and apricot scents with touches of beeswax, toasted almond and lanolin. Medium-bodied, the palate has great poise and finesse, delivering a racy backbone and loads of tight-knit stone fruit flavors, finishing long and toasty. 100% Chardonnay. RP 90 pts.
  • This wine's spring wildflower and orchard fruit scents delicately lift from the glass. The straightforward palate offers nectarine, apple and tangy citrus flavors while bitter almond marks the close. 100% Verdicchio. WE 89pts.
  • Delicately enticing scents of beeswax, honey and wildflower aromas mingle with whiffs of ripe apple. The aromas carry on to the medium-bodied palate along with a mineral note. 100% pinot blanc.
  • The Cederberg style Chenin Blanc offers beautiful layers of melon, grapefruit & fleshy white pear. Four months lees contact ensured a mouth coating creaminess on the palate with a lively crisp acidity to finish off. Altitude vineyards make this Chenin Blanc truly unique. This wine will be well suited to creamy dishes as well as light summer lunches.
  • The folks at Chehalem suppress malo on this tank-fermented chardonnay, highlighting the full range of aromas and flavors of the Willamette Valley fruit. Pure and explosive aromatics redolent of late-summer/early fall farmers' market-stone fruit, citrus, melon, green apple and pear notes are grounded with earthy vanilla and spicy ginger. On the palate the tart, vibrant fruit is balanced by a shock of mineral. 100% Chardonnay. WE 90 pts.
  • This one of a kind varietal is known to be found mainly in the Collio border regions of Italy and Slovenia. This unusual varietal dances across the palate with flavors of Pinot Grigio, the soft acidity of Sauvignon Blanc and complimented with the slight fruit of a dry Riesling. The wine is full and lively on the palate with notes of lemon, peach, cedar and grapefruit, the finish is full and lively with a gentle aroma of acacia and vanilla. Best served with fish, shellfish, refreshing salads and light meat dishes.
  • The 2018 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres, matured in up to 35% new oak, was showing a touch of reduction on the nose like the En Remilly, although it was far easier to discern the intense citrus and Granny Smith apple scents underneath. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, lightly honeyed fruit, not a complex Champs Gain but one endowed with nascent energy and there is a pleasant prickle of spice on the finish. Give this a couple of years in barrel to show what it can do.  RP 90 pts.
  • The upper Loire Valley is known for two iconic wine growing sub-regions – Pouilly Fume, and Sancerre. Nearly all wine cultivated in these areas are from the Sauvignon Blanc variety. Crisp, appropriately acidic, and aromatic, these wines are an amazing experience on both the nose and palate.Mostly unoaked, these wines have amazing structure with perfumy notes of grapefruit and gooseberry with a slight note of honey. These wines pair amazingly well with nearly all kinds of seafood and salad greens with citrus or vinegar based dressings. This Domaine de Saint-Pierre Sancerre shows the classic structure of Sauvignon Blanc with great minerality and dryness coupled with citrus and tree fruit like pear and apple. 100 % Sauvignon Blanc.
  • The 2017 Chardonnay Arthur was aged 10 months in about 15% new oak and has pure aromas of golden apples, quince, toast, honey, almonds and notions of elderflower, hay and chamomile. The light to medium-bodied palate is silky and delicate with mouthwatering acidity and a long, lively finish. 100% Chardonnay. RP 92 pts, WS 91 pts.
