For generations, the Almondo family have tended vines of Arneis, the noble white variety of Piedmont. Their Bricco delle Ciliegie dazzles right out of the bottle, with generous aromas of white flowers, almonds and a touch of sage. The mid-palate has layers of concentrated peach and citrus fruit with a mineral streak and a long, clean finish that leaves you wanting another sip.
93 Points (Editors’ Choice), Wine Enthusiast
It’s not surprising this is the fourth straight vintage of at least a 93-point showing and this is even before James Suckling weighs in on his favorite Sardinian winery. By the time he weighs in, it will be too late for wine lovers. I locked into the last 20 cases stateside of this beauty just as Wine Enthusiast was putting the finishing touches on their 93-point Editors’ Choice review, where they loudly called out the wine’s full-bodied juiciness, to match that signature salty finish.

“A relatively new vineyard label for Aubert (the third vintage to be produced), the 2019 Chardonnay Powder House comes from eight acres of what are now estate-owned vines planted in 2013 to Hyde Old Wente and Mt. Eden clones on Goldridge soils. It prances out of the glass with showy scents of fresh nectarines, pink grapefruit, lime leaves and preserved lemons plus hints of struck flint and wet pebbles. The full-bodied palate possesses an almost electric intensity with bags of nervy citrusy flavors and a very lively backbone, finishing with great length and oodles of minerals. This should age fantastically!”
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, this is a high-tone northern Italian white bursting with white flowers, honeysuckle and stone fruits. Crisp and clean, finishing juicy and surprisingly long. A perfect complement to all kinds of seafood dishes, summer vegetables, poultry and light cheeses. There is no old-vine, small lot Pinot Grigio that exists for anywhere near the price of this one.
The newly released 2020 Brunori ‘Le Gemme’ Verdichio is everything you’re looking for in a vibrant, food-friendly white wine. About a billion times better than every-day Pinot Grigio, the Brunori is an electric, vibrant white which combines delicious fruit and vibrancy with boasts a killer nose of white peach, honeycomb and almonds. The fruit is wonderfully concentrated with a salty, stony finish that goes forever. You’re going to want to add a few bottles to your collection ASAP.
94 Points, Decanter — 92+ Points (Top Discovery), Parker’s Wine Advocate
A crazy new project between one of Bordeaux’s and Sancerre’s best producers. Though few dry white Bordeaux ever command big scores– this one absolutely does. It’s exceptional. A wild floral bouquet with underlying tropical and citrus aromas and a mid-palate that sings like a single-vineyard Sancerre, this wine is just a delight to drink. Unsurprisingly, it comes with a 92+ from Lisa-Perrotti Brown who concluded her review by saying, “I’m seriously smitten by this uniquely fragrant, uncontrived style of dry white coming from Sauternes—bravo!
Year in, year out Château Turcaud produces one of the best white wine values in the world. It’s long been found on Michelin-starred wine lists in Paris and we’ve had it at the restaurant since Day 1. If you’ve ever tried this stunning, classic Bordeaux of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadlle, then you know why. The 2019 has just arrived, and it’s as fresh and as delicious as you could want. Enjoy.
From one of the best Loire wineries and one that Vinous recently dubbed, “a benchmark producer of Saumur-Champigny”. The newly released Saumur Blanc is a racy and lively treat. It mixes aromas of ripe apple and melon mingled with ginger and honeysuckle all elegantly lifting from the glass and leading to a concentrated core of peach and apricot flavors. The finish lasts forever– chalky, super crisp and as mineral as can be with a wonderful spice component that lingers.
The brand new Clos Julien Chard is a great example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. This one comes bristling with energy right out of the gates. It’s a flawlessly crafted single-vineyard Chardonnay– as bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with great minerality and a lingering, bright finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, pairs great with those summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.
Corzano’s Toscana Bianco is a blend of six varieties, native and French, drawn from vines rooted in the gravelly, clay and limestone-rich soils of Chianti. After a cold fermentation in steel, blocking malolactic fermentation, the result is a mineral accented white and yellow fruit core that finishes beautifully fresh with lingering acidity. This ‘White Chianti’ is a rare and elegant treat. It’s also a treat to drink outside on the deck over some grilled vegetables, fish or poultry.

While most New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs give you the killer tropical aromatics and flavors, they tend to be pretty one dimensional. But for New Zealand’s hottest winery of the last decade– the rich, complex, full-bodied expression of Sauvignon Blanc cut off Te Muna Road is elegant, crisp and refreshing – much more akin to village Sancerre than their Kiwi brethren. 92 Points and a Smart Buy from the always stingy Wine Spectator. 92 more points courtesy of Vinous and their new Master of Wine reviewer, Rebecca Gibb.
Diego Bolognani is one of the most knowledgeable and committed winemakers of Trentino. This Alpine growing region is perfect for Pinot Grigio and Diego’s is one of the best. The newly released 2020 has a beautiful balance of white flowers, nuts, citrus, and stony notes, with an utter purity of fruit and a long, refined finish. So fresh and delicious. Drink it outside all summer long.
