“A relatively new vineyard label for Aubert (the third vintage to be produced), the 2019 Chardonnay Powder House comes from eight acres of what are now estate-owned vines planted in 2013 to Hyde Old Wente and Mt. Eden clones on Goldridge soils. It prances out of the glass with showy scents of fresh nectarines, pink grapefruit, lime leaves and preserved lemons plus hints of struck flint and wet pebbles. The full-bodied palate possesses an almost electric intensity with bags of nervy citrusy flavors and a very lively backbone, finishing with great length and oodles of minerals. This should age fantastically!”
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.
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!
Jean-Claude Janin’s Domaine des Terres de Chatenay estate has 7 hectares of naturally farmed, old Chardonnay vines rooted in some of the most mineral soil of Burgundy. The resulting wines are electric renditions of white Burgundy, with high-toned, floral aromatics, a deep concentration of green apple and pear fruit and a laser-like finish that is stony, a touch saline and a mile long.

The newly released 2019 Domaine Laroche Chablis Saint Martin is a knockout, even better than the fantastic 2018 we offered last year. This year it comes armed with a 92 points– fitting for 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 and minerally and incredibly smooth. The lengthy acidity is what makes it so versatile at the table and provides structure for great aging potential.

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.
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.

Erin Nuccio, the former apprentice for Russ Raney at Evesham Wood has created quite the buzz in the Eola Amity AVA in Oregon with his winery Haden Fig. It’s there where he expresses himself more, experiments more with native yeast and pushes his winemaking boundaries to new heights. Erin’s 2018 is one of the end products of these new heights. This wine is an absolute bombshell, sourced from some of the best vineyard sites in Oregon.

A big 95-point score accompanies this beauty from Adam Tolmach that might go down as one of his best ever. Asian pear flavor, mixed with green apple, fresh apricot, Meyers lemon and a hint of vanilla hit all the right notes. It’s got tremendous balance and weight, with a depth of tangy citrus flavors and a wonderful streak of minerality. Chardonnay lovers will note the lemon pudding creaminess in the middle that gives its roundness. Once again, this extraordinary winemaker’s full range of talents are on display.

This is another world-class Chardonnay from Talbott — produced from the celebrated Sleepy Hollow Vineyard that has been recognized as one of California’s Grand Cru vineyards by Wine Enthusiast. This is going to win over al the fans of that buttery, classic American style of Chardonnay with a creamy lemon pudding middle and a smooth long finish. At the price we have this beauty, I don’t expect this one to be in stock very long.
