For generations, the Almondo family have tended vines of Arneis, the noble white variety of Piedmont. Their Bricco delle Ciliegie always seems to be a cut above the rest. It dazzles right out of the bottle, with tons of pent up energy and lift, 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.
From Soave Classico’s most privileged volcanic-limestone hillsides, comes a brand new release that is going to dazzle a lot of folks. 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.

Winemaker and pioneer Josh Jensen has been recognized by Wine Spectator as the Cover feature, he’s won multiple winemaking awards and he’s one of the most respected American winemakers ever. His legacy at Calera will be cemented in the history books, because he made great wines from top to bottom. His entry level Chardonnay was always a tremendous value – a high toned, expressive Chardonnay with impeccable balance and elegance well beyond its price tag. With Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and most likely Wine & Spirits weighing in soon, I’m certain this one will be treated to the usual 90+ point scoring brigade.

Charles Krug Estate is the oldest in the U.S. and easily one of the most special. In fact, the team even pays to have their Sauvignon Blanc grapes picked in the dead of night to ensure the perfect time, when the grapes are pristine and not stressed from the heat or the sun. In doing so, they preserve the full aromatic fireworks – a bouquet of stone fruits, guava, grapefruit and melon with wonderful lemony acidity and tension. The body is excellent and crisp with a touch of minerality to compliment the energetic, juicy fruit. The stainless steel maturation process makes this one especially expressive right from the start.
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 2020 vintage has just arrived, and it’s a fantastic vintage in Bordeaux for energetic whites. This is world-class, as always.
This is a spectacular new release – a flawlessly crafted, high energy coastal Chardonnay from one of California’s hottest spots. As bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with a hint of that limestone-influenced minerality creeping in on the finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, the perfect pair with mixed seafood, summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.
The 2019 Composition Chardonnay is stunningly complex. The nose is an impressive balance of floral notes, bright citrus, and pome fruits – a little bit rose laced into fresh, ripe pear. The location of the two parcels adds to the flavor dynamics. One block faces east towards Mt Hood and basks in the early sunlight; necessary for an extended growing season and complete maturity. The second, the North Block sits much higher in elevation upon a thin layer of soil and contributes delightful acidity. With those elements combined, the wine is stunning and unlike anything I’ve really laid my hands on from Oregon.

Dave Ramey is considered one of the best American winemakers right now and has been a longtime consultant for his friend, Davis Bynum. In the 2018 vintage, Ramey churned out an absolute star product, his River West Vineyard Chardonnay. It has 91-points and a Wine & Spirits ‘Best Buy’, a James Suckling 92-point score and he called it, “delicate, structured and long.” And last but not least, a rave 93-point review from Wine Enthusiast who deemed the wine, “rich in style yet underpinned by elegance”.
Glistening pale yellow-green to the rim, infused with mouth-watering aromas of ripe apple, pear and quince, and crushed almonds with honey and rich creamy middle and a fantastic rush of acidity and minerality that are present throughout. A calling card of Bonhomme’s Vire-Clesse, if you closed your eyes and took a sip, it would have you convinced you were drinking Meursault at least a 3x price tag. This is a White Burgundy you’re going to want to snag up quickly, we’re not going to have it in very long this year.
This is seriously good, proper Chablis grown on precious Kimmeridgian soil facing Les Blanchots, west of Montée de Tonnerre. Given what’s in the bottle, it’s offered at a shockingly good price. It’s textbook Chablis and unveils itself very slowly in the glass. One of those rare wines that’s different with almost every passing sip – especially as it warms a bit. Consequently, there’s a myriad of flavors that dart to and fro: pineapple, grapefruit, fresh mint, wildflower, wet stone, apple…all delightful and with that famous Chablis cut.
It’s no wonder this is a hot little ticket amongst some of NYC’s best restaurants; this is a killer wine at a great price. The 2020 Petit Chablis has an attractive nose of citrus rind, white flowers, and wet stone. In the palate, the wine is racy and mineral with just a touch of salinity. The hallmark of the great 2020s will be tension and length and Sébastien’s little wine has both in spades. The acidic/mineral cut will make this fantastic at the table and a great candidate for short term aging.
