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 Carneros Reserve bottling cherry picks the family’s favorite lots to blend into a harmonious explosion – nearing a sensory overload. The nose is like sticking your face in a freshly baked peach/apple cobbler pie. Equally assertive flavors of melon, apples, and pears swim around the palate. Everything you expect from a classic Cakebread.

The 2005 Yquem starts out incredibly welcoming with seductive aromas. The mouthfeel offers perfect balance with fresh acidity and elegance complimenting the wine’s power and giving it tremendous grace. It’s crazy good right now, but I think I will defer to Lisa Perotti-Brown, who said in her 97-pt review of this classic wine just last year, “This decadent flavor bomb still needs a good five to seven years in bottle before it is set to go off, but oh what a spectacle it will give then!” From what it’s already showing, this can be one special bottle for Sauternes collectors.

This one is a beauty. A great mix of baked apple, mango and papaya with honeysuckle and vanilla. For a top-notch First Growth Sauternes with 95 points – perfectly cellared and stored for 15 years – price tag seems almost nonsensical. $33/375ml or $29.70/bottle when added to case orders. Who’s ready to drink their desert this Thanksgiving?
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.
The 2019 Clos Julien is a classic example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. It starts out with a great nose of Granny Smith apple, citrus rind and acacia. In the mouth, the fruit is pure, with plenty of extract and the finish is clean and crisp. This Pacific-influenced wine is the perfect house white, delicious by itself as an aperitif but a fantastic foil to the cuisine of summer, scallops, grilled poultry, and summer corn.
The best white wine of the summer has arrived. Bolognani has been a staple on our list since the day we opened the door. It’s everything you want in Pinot Grigio. It’s floral with a pretty nose, a juicy middle and the zippy finish. It’s an incredibly expressive, refreshing wine that has all the goods– it’s aromatic, crisp and clean.
Corsin’s Vielles Vignes 2017 is a masterpiece. Carved from 40-50 year old vines in Saint-Véran, perched high up in the hills with incredibly rich clay limestone soil beneath. The wine is aged in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak, giving it length and depth and a wonderful mineral expression. Drink it now while its still juicy with its white peach and ginger notes, or lay it down and let it continue to evolve over the next decade plus.
During all my years at Jean-Georges, for white Burgundy, nothing sold quite like Etienne Sauzet. The 2018 Bourgogne Blanc from this amazing producer gives readers and drinkers the opportunity to have an incredible white Burgundy from one of its best producers at a modest price. This wine is bristling with energy– rich and racy with a mineral length that not only shows it is one of the best white wines in the world for fine cuisine but also has the legs to gracefully age for a least a decade. Only a few bottles found their way to me, don’t miss em!

The deep brown clay soils of the Haut-Lieu plateau provide the typical fruitiness and freshness wonderfully in Huet’s 2019 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Sec. Ripe pear, tangerine and orange fruits with notes of lemon grass and green pimientos intertwined with very fine chalky and later tobacco notes give a remarkably fine, elegant and harmonious, subtly complex and simply gorgeous bouquet with floral (lime blossom!) and yeasty aromas that are immediately attractive. Delicate and linear on the palate, this is a pure, fresh, bone-dry, lean and textured, highly refined and perfectly interwoven Chenin with persistent purity, finesse, salty-mineral tension and very fine tannins. Highly finessed and so pure and vivacious! This is a chalky picture-book Haut-Lieu that can age for many years, even though it is already dangerously seductive! There was no dry Le Haut-Lieu produced in 2018, but the 2019 is possibly the finest, most delicate and elegant I’ve had in recent years, at least at this early stage. A terrific and buoyant Vouvray that any Chenin lover should try—or, better yet, cellar!

Again, Huet’s 2019 Vouvray Le Mont Sec reflects the unique, south-facing nine-hectare vineyard with its pebbly flint (silex) and green clay soils wonderfully! Pure, fresh and flinty on the deep, intense yet also floral and herbal nose that represents a concentrated and firm white stone fruit aroma with lemon and grapefruit notes as well as fennel, anise and cumin hints. This is a winner from an epic producer with only a few bottles left to go round!
I understand how daunting it can be each year to get Leflaive into your collection. But, even in its infancy, the 2018 vintage promises to bring something special. It already has Wine Spectator calling it, “an ideal vintage at Domaine Leflaive” and after tasting through the wines last week– I’m amazed.
The Mâcon-Verzé is a stunner and an incredible value. Drawn from nine special plots, and utilizing a combination of steel, cement and oak fermentation that leads to a wide array of flavor profiles. Fresh Granny Smith Apple set against a persistent minerality, refreshing with hints of Meyer Lemon.
Of course, it’s got incredible length and precision and at the price today, is as good a bargain as exists at Domaine Leflaive. If you’re starting or expanding your cellar, this is an impeccable place to begin.
