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

  • Chardonnay
  • Tupungato
  • Mendoza
  • 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."

2013 Chateau St. Jean

  • Chardonnay
  • Belle Terre Vineyard
  • Sonoma County
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"This goes through full malolactic fermentation and sees a small amount (20%) aged in new French oak for 10 months. This shows more tropical fruit, pineapple, white peach and apple blossom notes. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with terrific fruit purity and richness. There are nearly 9,500 cases of this beauty, which sells for a song when you consider how high quality a Chardonnay it is."

2014 Baileyana

  • Chardonnay
  • Firepeak
  • Edna Valley
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Burgundy-raised vintner Christian Roguenant gets to show his stuff in this line of Firepeak wines. Wet cement, honeysuckle, crisp Asian pear and the slightest hints of tropicality show on the nose, while the palate offers yellow grapefruit, lemon skins, squeezed lime and lime-blossom flavors, wrapped around nervy tension."

2014 Talley

  • Chardonnay
  • Estate
  • San Luis Obispo
  • California
  • White
  • 750 ml

"Pale gold. A lively, incisive bouquet evokes citrus and orchard fruits and white flowers, and an iodine nuance emerges as the wine opens up. Shows excellent clarity and depth to the fresh orange, pear and candied ginger flavors, which open up steadily with air. Smoothly combines power and vivacity and finishes very long and taut, with resonating mineral and floral notes."

2014 Newton

  • Chardonnay
  • Unfiltered
  • Napa Valley
  • California
  • 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."

  • Sierra Mar Vineyard
  • Santa Lucia Highlands

"Light yellow-gold. A complex bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, iodine and pungent flowers, and a hint of smoky lees emerges with air. Sappy, penetrating and impressively deep, offering palate-staining lemon curd, pear nectar and toasted brioche flavors that are lifted and given spine by juicy acidity. Distinctly rich yet lithe, finishing with superb energy and lingering floral and mineral notes."

Orchard fruit, flowers and white pepper are some of the scents that emerge from the glass, but it is the wine's overall feel that really impresses today."
