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 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!
Lydia Cornu’s 2018 Pernand Blanc Les Vignes Blanches is intense, loaded with flavors of green apple, lemon cream and hazelnuts. It’s crazy long on the palate, mineral and stony all the way through which keeps it light on its feet and incredibly drinkable. The only downside to Lydia’s white wines is that she makes tiny amounts of wine– just a few barrels total.
During all my years at Jean-Georges, for white Burgundy, and specifically, Puligny Montrachet, nothing sold quite like Etienne Sauzet. The 2017 is rich but racy white Burg 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.
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.
The 2018 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a terrific white Burgundy with a killer nose of citrus rind, quince and thyme that opens up to a dense, packed mid-palate of crunchy fruit. The finish is classic Chablis, chalky, mineral and fine. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.
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.
Adam Tolmach of Ojai is one of the pioneers of Santa Barbara County. He founded Au Bon Climat with Jim Clendenen, then moved on to start Ojai in 1983. His 2017 Bien Nacido Chardonnay is an incredibly aristocratic, elegant wine unlike most that chooses a balanced, finesse style over sheer power. This is a serious Chardonnay!
Carneros is well-known as a cool-climate region, perfect for growing Chardonnay. The 2016 version has a delightful pale straw color with lime hues. The aromas are of honeysuckle, orange blossom and creme brulee with layers of vanilla and a hint of toffee. The palate is lively yet soft with flavors of lemon cream pie and merange.
