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 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 fantastic 2018 Domaine André Bonhomme Viré-Clessé Vieilles Vignes is crafted by André’s grandson, Aurelien Palthey. It really is one for the ages, 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.
Here we are – our most anticipated Chardonnay year in and year out – at the best price since we offered the 2015! It is an unadulterated version of Chardonnay, filled with mineral-laced green-apple/Asian pear aromas and flavors. Bracing acidity provides a super long finish and wonderful food-friendliness. Get it while it lasts!
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.
Tank-fermented and aged Chardonnay from the heart of Burgundy is a classic pairing for summer cuisine of all types. The Talmard family have been naturally farming Chardonnay vines in the village of Uchizy for generations. Vinified in tank with no oak influence makes for the purest of Chardonnays; fresh and fruity, with ripe-pear fruit and zippy acidity. It’s a classic summer white.
Bright and extremely inviting on the nose with fresh citrus and lemon notes. The wine is expressive, dancing out of the glass with aromas of lemon pie. It’s classic Caymus, rich and hedonistic with a wonderful creaminess. Mer Soleil’s fresh and juicy fruit is balanced perfectly by the new vintage’s vibrant acidity. It’s a winner, for sure.
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.

Perhaps Ojai’s greatest white wine release to date is the 2018 Chardonnay from the Puerta del Mar Vineyard. PDM or the “door to the sea” is the perfect vineyard to challenge the classically trained winemaker. Perched on the very edge of where grapes can actually get ripe, just a ridge away from the Pacific. The vines struggle mightily – which in excellent vintages means a concentration of flavor and minerality that is absolutely remarkable. 2018 is one of those vintages. Incredibly aromatically complex with a concentration of fruit and mineral backbone generally reserved for Burgundy three times the price.
