This wine was harvested from low-yielding vines in the windswept hills of San Luis Obispo which produce tiny grapes, absolutely packed with flavor. The 2018 Petit Grains offers the perfect combo of green apple, hazelnut and mineral freshness. Just a dynamite bottle of American Chard, priced to drink every day.
The Brunori family have been farming naturally in this area for three generations; their top vineyard, San Nicolò, is widely regarded as the top cru in their zone. The wine has a terrific combination of fruit and vibrancy with beautiful aromatics and a lovely, nutty finish.
The 2016 Chardonnay is a product of cool-climate vineyards from Santa Barbara County, just one ridge away from the Pacific. This is the best source for Chardonnay that marries the richness and fruit that many people love with a bracing acidity and mineral freshness that makes the wine so good with food. Oh, and the price is silly!
This champagne is so good, it’s often a staple on the wine lists of Michelin two and three star restaurants. It offers elegant aromatics, pristine fruit and the crisp, mineral finish that screams for food. We loved it so much, we asked Jacques Diebolt to bottle a special cuveé for the restaurant– and he happily agreed!

This domaine was my favorite of the white burgundy domaines at Jean Georges. Referts might as well be a Grand Cru in my book. Its old vines, rooted in a sheer slab of limestone, produce epic wines of finesse, length and power that will wow at any table next Saturday night and every other for at least the next decade.
Florent Garaudet’s 2017 Bourgogne Blanc is a spectacular white Burgundy. Sourced from 60 year old vines, the nose is redolent of mineral-laced lemon-lime rind, hazelnut and pear fruit. Few wines match it for elegance, complexity and food friendliness. This opulent yet high toned white Burg is a steal at today’s price.
The 2018 Mâcon-Péronne is old vine Chardonnay, done in steel to preserve the inherent fruitiness and pure aromatics of the best of white Burgundy always has. It’s a great choice for a house white, perfect with so many things, roasted chicken, flaky white fish and just by itself as the perfect apertif. Just $19 on cases while it lasts!
There were few wines on our last trip to Burgundy that absolutely radiated with energy quite like the Jacqueson Rully Blanc 2018. The vineyard produces complex, long-living white Rully that rivals Meursault and Chassagne Montrachet for a fraction of the price. This is wound-up, stony white Burg that will unravel in your glass.
In San Luis Obispo it’s all about the farming. San Luis Obispo is right on edge of where grapes get ripe but in the right hands, home to some of the most exciting examples of Chardonnay that I ever tasted. Juliana Layla Chardonnay is a lively, cool-climate wine, loaded with crisp green apple and pear fruit, kissed with just a touch new wood.

The latest from OJAI Winemaker Adam Tolmach and his Assistant Winemaker, Fabien Castel. The Ojai Chardonnay Puerta Del Mar 2017 has an Asian pear flavor that’s mixed with green apple, fresh apricot, Meyers lemon and a hint of vanilla. Antonio Galloni says it “bristles with energy” and gave 94 pts!

A monumental wine with an enormous score to match. “This high elevation Sonoma County Chardonnay offers the broadest, fattest fruit profile of Peter Michael’s four single-vineyard Chardonnays, with clean citrus notes, exotic lychee and signature wet stone-like minerality.”

The Peter Michael “La Carriere” 2017 is a tightly wound, charged up wine that takes time to unravel in the glass. It is loaded with aromas and flavors of citrus rind, white flowers, green apple and pear with a distinctive sense of minerality that flows throughout the wine.
