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 brand new Clos Julien Chard is a great example of California coastal Chardonnay, zippy-fresh and long on the palate. This one comes bristling with energy right out of the gates. It’s a flawlessly crafted single-vineyard Chardonnay– as bright and refreshing as you could want, it hits with clean, pristine green apple fruits, pears and citrus notes with great minerality and a lingering, bright finish. It’s a fantastic wine for summer, pairs great with those summer tomatoes, corn and freshly caught fish.

Directly across town from Grand Cru Les Clos lies one of the most interesting Premier Cru vineyards in Chablis – Les Vaillons. The soil is Kimmeridgian Marl and southeast-facing hillside bakes in the morning sun – allowing the grapes to achieve perfect ripeness despite cool temperatures. Right now – stone and minerality dominate, putting on an absolute show of the famous soils. Hints of lemon zest give way to pure Meyer lemon and a kiss of honey. It’s got that pure mouth-puckering acidity and pop you get from the very best Chablis.
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!
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 Vocorets are one of the oldest producers in Chablis – and still family owned and operated today. Their 2019 Chablis is a knockout and a reminder of how special these White Burgundies can be when made right. Light gold color with green hues. Fresh & lively with a wealth of peaches and mangoes. Lemons chime in on the palate. Well-balanced with good acidity and long minerally finish.

The newest Dutton Ranch courtesy of Dan Goldfield & Co. is a total knockout. 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.
For those of you who don’t already know by now, Sergio Germano is a wizard. His tank-fermented Chardonnay is sourced from his high elevation vineyards in Cigliè, just outside the Barolo zone, rooted on a crazy steep hillside in sheer limestone. The 2019 Chard a laser beam of crunchy green apple fruit, stony minerality and fresh acidity. It absolutely lances through rich cuisine, perfect with fatty salmon belly, roasted chicken and morels or omelettes with goat cheese and asparagus. Perfect wine for the summer, especially served chilled on a hot day.
The 2016 vintage in Napa was nearly perfect for winemaker Kian Tavakoli (Opus One, Clos du Val). With ideal weather all throughout harvest, he crafted the Faustini Money Road Chardonnay off the famous vineyard located in the coveted Oakville AVA. The picturesque vineyard off Oakville Crossroad is platinum rated, known for its ideal combination of soil & climate and the big A list names that routinely source fruit. Kian’s Money Road Chard is still youthful despite having a few years of age, probably as a result of its 18 months of slumber in 1/4 new Oak.
Classic Macon aromas of white flowers & citrus fruits, medium bodied on the palate with lemon peel, peach, and a kiss of minerality. Vanilla-tinged creaminess on the mid-palate gives way to lively acidity. This is easily one of the better white Burgundies for the price that I’ve had in any vintage. It’s a killer wine.

“Gorgeous aromas and flavors of pencil shavings, candied citrus and honey highlight this classy, stylish Champagne. Its balanced, beautifully integrated and long, with a finesse and freshness that suggests a Côte des Blancs pedigree. A special cuvée for restaurants only. ” -Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
