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.
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!
The just released 2018 Domaine André Bonhomme Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes, crafted by André’s grandson, Aurelien Palthey, is one for the ages, and taking a brilliant page from that Taillevent script. Glistening pale yellow-green to the rim, infused with mouth-watering aromas of ripe apple, pear and quince, tinged with anise and bitter honey. Full-bodied and rich in the mid-palate, yet still wonderfully light on its feet, finishing with textbook Meursaultien cut and vibrancy. Drink now if you’re impatient, or lay down for a decade or two.

The 2016 Dutton Ranch is a big winner. A lively, energetic old-world style Chardonnay with fresh citrus and stone fruits, a touch of salinity and piercing minerality. Flavors of green apple, mango, apricot and lemon are accented by salivating notes of toasted hazelnuts and toffee. This one is a perfect compliment to most any dish or served chilled in a glass by the pool!

Kissed with just a touch of oak and apple pie on the nose, the LOLA Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2017 courtesy of former Caymus winemaker, Seth Cripe features mouthwatering flavors of fresh peaches & Meyer lemon. This one is zesty and the perfect midweek food wine.
Unlike some of the high flying price tags of his neighbors, Bruce Neyers’ 40-years of retail experience has always led him to keep his prices low – the $30 price tag is a steal for a Chardonnay of this caliber. But today’s price is just flat out irresistible for Chablis-style Sonoma Chardonnay– for under $25 on bottle one. Stock up.
At this point in time, nothing winemaker Adam Tolmach does surprises me anymore, but his wines are continuously outstanding. The 2018 Bien Nacido Vineyard Chardonnay is a beautiful compilation of freshness, creaminess and minerality. Lemon and citrus notes followed by a creamy vanilla mid-palate and a long fresh finish. Critics, restaurants and consumers agree, Ojai wines are always a great buy.
Winemaker, Anne Sery’s third vintage of Chardonnay is spectacular, rich but laser-focused and long on the palate. Long hang time allows for great aromatic complexity, the wine is redolent of white fruits, vanilla, anise and a touch of new oak. It’s loaded with fruit and the finish is long, mineral with a hint of saline. Pair this high-toned, electric Chard with scallops, flaky white fish, and roasted poultry.
