2015 Novellum

  • Chardonnay
  • Vin de Pays
  • Cotes Catalanes
  • France
  • White
  • 750 ml

"This is a smokin’ value. Tasting like it cost three times the price, it offers lots of orchard fruits, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of vanilla to go with a medium to full-bodied, crisp, yet still textured and mouth-filling style on the palate. You can’t go wrong at the price and this is a terrific wine to enjoy over the coming year or two."

2015 Catena

  • Argentina
  • White
  • 750 ml

"There is one white in the appellation range, which is subtly balsamic and spicy from limestone-rich soils in Tupungato in the Valle de Uco, from two vineyards, in Villa Bastías and La Esmeralda. There are pungent flavors, very good intensity and balance and the chalky sensation is nicely coated by juicy fruit."

  • White
  • 750 ml

"This has been a consistent winner since it was first launched in the early 1980s, when the fruit was coming from what is today John Kongsgaard's Judge cuvee. This is rich and displays beautiful white peach, honeysuckle and tropical fruit, some nice, crisp wet pebble minerality in the background and a full-bodied mouthfeel. Deep, layered and complete, this is a big-time winner."

2015 Isole E Olena

  • Chardonnay
  • Collezione Privata
  • Tuscany
  • Italy
  • White
  • 750 ml

"This white wine hits all the high notes with impeccable precision. This shows two sides to the bouquet. On one hand you get generous fruit tones of apricot and preserved lemon with the opulent fullness that characterizes this excellent vintage. On the other hand, you get delicate notes of flint and brimstone that give the wine a linear sense of backbone and persistence. The mouthfeel is driven by freshness, medium build and a very long finish. This is a terrific Chardonnay from Tuscany."
