2016 Byron "Nielson Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $40) (Elsewhere $40)
Top Pick!
95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Chardonnay vines in the Nielson vineyard were originally planted in 1964; this wine comes from those cuttings used to replant. Youthfully shy on the nose, the 2016 Chardonnay Nielson Vineyard opens very minerally with aromas of saline, crushed shell, gunflint and toast with ripe Golden Delicious apple, baked quince, warm Meyer lemon, pie crust and peach. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rounded and silky, oozing layer after layer of ripe, savory, spicy fruits, framed with tangy acidity and finishing very long...

94 points Vinous: "Bright, light yellow-gold. Multidimensional nose melds aromas of stone fruits, pineapple and pear with notes of savory spices, honey and lemon grass and a Riesling-like piney quality. Compellingly fine-grained, concentrated and harmonious from the start, with a suggestion of figgy sweetness (the wine is technically bone-dry) perfectly countered by strong acidity. Finishes tactile and very long, with a suggestion of eucalyptus. Most recent vintages of this consistently superb wine have been considerably tighter early on, but this is a k...

2016 La Monacesca "Mirum" Verdicchio di Matelica Riserva
Top Pick!
93 points James Suckling: " A complex, quite flinty verdicchio with a ton of citrus fruit and pears and a rather succulent but not heavy palate. In fact, the finish has a nice lightness of touch and some real finesse. Drink now." (08/2018) K&L Notes: The Matelica region of the Marche is one of the most unique growing zones in all of Italy; it is a north-south valley in the middle of the Apennine mountain range that once was a salt lake. The orientation of the valley closes it off from the warm coastal waters (the opposite of the west coast of the US) a...

2016 Ann Albert "Bien Nacido Vineyard" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $40) (Elsewhere $40)
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from a great site in the Santa Maria Valley, the 2016 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard spent 16 months all in neutral oak. It has a brilliant bouquet of crisp white peach, tart pineapple, salty minerality, and white flowers. This carries to a medium-bodied Chardonnay that has a silky, elegant texture, integrated acidity, and fabulous balance. This terrific effort will keep for upwards of a decade." (10/2019) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Hazelnut, preserved lemon, warm toast and a touch of daffodil show on the nose of this s...

2016 Mount Eden Edna Valley Chardonnay
New!
91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Edna Valley is also terrific, with a slightly more layered, textured style and less minerality than the Santa Cruz Chardonnay. Ripe orchard fruits, some tropical notes, background oak, and a medium-bodied, rich, balanced texture all make for a terrific cool climate Chardonnay to drink over the coming 7-8 years." (02/2019) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This Santa Cruz Mountains-based winery has been making a value-driven Edna Valley Chardonnay since 1985, and this one does not disappoint, Pungent aromas of lemon...

93 points James Suckling: "Very floral and fruity with hints of pear and melon on the nose. Medium to full body, spicy and minerally undetones to the chalky, almond-tinted fruit. Delicious and intense finish. " (10/2017) 91 points Vinous: "Luminous straw-green. Lively aromas and flavors of nectarine and green apple carry intense floral nuances. The aftertaste is long, cool and brimming with early appeal. Drink through 2021. (ID)" (12/2018)

Winemaker's Notes: "Our Carneros District Chardonnay comes from "Shot-Wente Clone" grapes grown on three vineyards: Yamakawa Ranch on Watmaugh Road; the Sangiacomo Family Green Acres Vineyard parcel on Hwy. 121 planted in 1994; the Donnell sisters El Novillero Vineyard at the intersection of Highways 121 and 116, in the hills at the western-most boundary of the Carneros AVA. All three vineyards are in the cool-weather area of Carneros, close to the San Francisco Bay, so ripening is slow and natural fruit acidity is high, making for a wine both fresh and ...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Mellow notes of ripe apple have a wonderfully spiky lemon headiness. The more air this gets, the purer the lemon appears. The palate benefits from that same lemon directness. The body is taut and streamlined, seamed with fruit but all bundled around that concentrated lightning lemon core. A full-fruited, wonderfully direct expression of Riesling, the finish on this wine is taut, refreshing and dry. Drink now through 2030.

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast is an elegant, crisp white from Tony Biagi that has terrific notes of white flowers, pineapple cream, and lime. With both richness and freshness, drink this smoking value over the coming 2-4 years." (01/2019) 91 points James Suckling: "A layered and flavorful Chardonnay with lots of cooked apple and hints of lemon rind. Full body, hints of vanilla and green apple yet its full malo. Some lime undertones." (11/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast (aged ...

After working as the vineyard manager for Newton Vineyards for over 30 years, Lupe Maldonado bought a 10-acre piece of land in the cool southern tip of Napa (in Jamieson Canyon), and planted vineyards in the dark, gravelly clay soil. He brought in Jean Hoefliger from Newton as his consulting winemaker.

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up pretty aromas of buttered apples, citrus oil and subtle white truffle that are subtly framed by new oak, the 2016 Chardonnay Steiner Vineyard is full-bodied, succulent and flavorful, with an ample, even lavish attack but with good underlying, balancing acidity. Concentrated and lingering, it's a lovely example of Sonoma County Chardonnay. (WK)" (06/2018) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Beautifully situated in the far south of Bennett Valley, on the northern slopes of Sonoma Mountain, the Steiner Vine...

From a vintage that Jeb Dunnuck has hailed as "an incredibly beautiful, classic year for Napa Valley," Sullivan's 2016 Rutherford Estate Chardonnay displays all the hallmarks of top-flight Napa Chard - stunning purity and opulence of fruit married to radiant balance. It also happens to be a screaming deal in a category for which the prices often outpace the quality. No such issue here!

Importer notes: "Situated just a stone’s throw away from the Slovenian border, Edi Keber’s 10 hectares of vineyards grow on the classic "ponca" soil, a stony, friable marl that gives the wines remarkable weight and body. Extremely poor, the "ponca" naturally stresses the vines which produce very small quantities of grapes (1 to 1.5 kg/vine) and provide a distinctive minerality, typical of the Collio region. Keber's first bottled wines date back to 1957, although his family, originally from Vienna, has made wine for 350 years. Edi deeply believes in the u...

92 points Vinous: "Bright medium-dark yellow. Aromas of apple, pear, lime and apple cider on the rich nose. Then dense, bright and juicy, featuring suave pomaceous orchard fruit flavors and a hint of gingery zing on the clean finish. Lovely, refreshing but also very concentrated white that is increasingly less funky and macerated than past vintages of Trebbiano d’Abruzzo from Emidio Pepe. (ID)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: *Natural Wine*

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The oak-aged 2016 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Riserva Giatl is a medium to full-bodied white wine with nuances of summer peach, Golden Delicious apple and lemon mousse. That chorus of yellow fruit flavors is really very beautiful. The wine wraps thickly over the palate with a rich texture and creamy disposition followed by breezy acidity. Some 11,000 bottles were produced. 92+ (ML)" (08/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a light, delicate white, with aromas of honeysuckle and Meyer lemon zest. High in acidity, it invites green apple and pear flavors on the palate, bolstered by seasonings of lemongrass and ginger. It'll please a crowd or excel at starting off a meal. *Editors' Choice* (VB)" (07/2018)


Wine Spectator: "Floral hints accent the snappy white fruit and citrus flavors. Taut midpalate, with a finish that lingers with details of fennel and shiso leaf. (MK)" (07/2019)
Price: $19.95

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of sliced apple, apricot and pear follow through to a full body, bright acidity and a stone, slate and light sea salt aftertaste. Solid white. Drink now. " (10/2017) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A pleasantly fruity hint of russet-pear peel hits the nose first, followed by notes of lemon. Likewise, the palate combines tart freshness and fruity juiciness. The light palate is brisk and dry, showing a clean finish, with just a touch of zestiness." (09/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Riesling Zöbing is a med...

From the winery: "Lush, immediately approachable and undeniably delicious, Luke’s Grove is often our Chardonnay ambassador for EK newbies and long timers alike. While we continue to fine-tune it in the vineyards and the cellar, it remains a quintessential Russian River Valley illustration of this varietal and our most widely popular since we introduced it way back in 2004. Now mostly comprised of Stiling Vineyard fruit, we chose to pick this vineyard in several stages to provide both ripeness and natural acidity. A small 4% addition of Fallenleaf Vineya...

Jan Holtermann, the founder of Alma Fria, worked in his family's wine importing business in his native Costa Rica for decades before moving his family to start the winery of his dreams. The name is meant to evoke "the West Sonoma Coast’s windswept Pacific climate, up-lifted coastal mountains, and towering ancient redwoods converge in Alma Fria’s elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay."

"Creating wines in harmony with nature" is the philosophy of Jean-Noël Millon, seventh-generation family winemaker at this family run estate. Located in the village of Varrains, just a short distance from the town of Saumur, Jean-Noel farms 14 hectares of vineyards biodynamically all planted on the clay-limestone tuffeaux that makes the region so special. The Coulee d'Aunis is 100% Chenin Blanc from one hectare that is all hand-harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and spends about one year in primarily used barrique. The result is a remarkable ...

94 points James Halliday: "Multi-clone, wild-fermented in French oak (10% new), 10 months maturation. Generous and rich, with nectarine and white peach to the fore, neatly tightened on the finish by grapefruit/citrus acidity." (11/2017)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "If you've never been blown away by a California sauvignon blanc, you owe it to yourself to taste this wine. Over half of the fruit comes from an old vineyard that Joe Rochioli, Jr., planted in 1959; it's now farmed by his son Tom. Old vines, as well as the sunny, temperate climate and stony soil along the banks of the Russian River, drew the fruit to a precise, focused intensity in 2016. You'll find ripe, luscious flavors of papaya and peach -even redder tones of wild strawberry- tied to a profound sense of mineral depth. For a...

This family-owned domaine dates back to 1804, and is located in a tiny Loire village named St-Julien-de Chédon. Since 2009, Laurent Benoist has been at the helm, focusing his efforts on sustainable farming and pure, terroir-driven wines. As a region, Touraine has the flexibility to plant a wide range of varieties, so it’s different from the more formal areas such as Vouvray, which only allows Chenin Blanc, or Sancerre, which only allows Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. In Touraine, they can grow Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet ...

Neal Martin writes: "Located in the heart of the village of Puligny is Domaine Pernot-Belicard, a less well-known producer perhaps, though their premises are certainly impressive. The internet seems undecided on whether it is “Belicart” or “Belicard”, though it should be the latter and without hyphen. I met with Philippe Pernot, the son of Paul Pernot, who established the domaine with his wife in 2009. His approach in the vineyard is one of lutte raisonee..."

93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is a terrific introduction to the Stonestreet Chardonnays. Citrus, apricot, mint and a dash of new oak add nuance to this finely cut mountain Chardonnay. The Estate Chardonnay is another wine that delivers serious quality for the money. Silky and textured, the 2016 hits all the right notes. What a gorgeous wine it is. (AG) " (07/2018) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Estate is another wine sourced from higher elevation sites and was barrel fermented and aged. It offers a classic style in its bake...

94 points James Suckling: "Another very exotic white from Yeringberg, which remains focused and dialed-in. Dried pineapple is the main attraction on the nose, as well as apple pastries, red grapefruit, passion fruit and praline. An acutely smoky undertone, too. Round and opulent on the palate, but it is still very much in check. This is all thanks to a refreshing layer of acidity through the mid-palate, carrying this long through the finish.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Brioche and almond flavors meet a sleek, smooth and tightly focused core in this meticulously made white. Apple, pear and lemon meringue provide complexity on the midpalate before finishing crisp and slightly spicy. *Editor's Choice* (VB)" (11/2018)

92 points Wine & Spirits: "Catalan-based Cordoníu Raventós started this project in Carneros 25 years ago, and this is the highest score we’ve yet awarded to an Artesa wine. It’s made by Portuguese-born Ana Diogo Draper, who joined Artesa in 2013, becoming director of winemaking in 2015. It’s as targeted as a bee sting, with scents of wildflower honey and beeswax. The texture has some apple-butter richness, but the clarity and freshness of the fruit keeps it bouncy, clean enough to serve with a grilled octopus salad, and substantial enough to take on butt...

93 points John Gilman: "The 2016 Vouvray 'Utopie' Demi-Sec from Florent Cosme comes from his oldest parcel of vines, which are more than seventy years of age. The wine is raised similarly to the la Motte Sec in four hundred liter, four-to-eight year-old barrels. The wine delivers a fine aromatic constellation of sweet quince, a touch of pineapple, incipient honeycomb, flinty soil tones and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and complex, with great mid-palate depth, bright, zesty acids and excellent leng...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As my tasting routine takes me to Valdeorras every 16 months or so, sometimes I have two vintages of the most relevant wines to taste side by side. Such was the case with the 2016 As Sortes, which I tasted next to the following 2017 vintage. 2016 was a slow-ripening year with a dry harvest that allowed for perfectly ripe grapes while maintaining very good levels of freshness. It fermented and matured in 500-liter oak barrels for some six to seven months. This has to be the finest vintage for As Sortes, and they s...

Oak? Yes, it's there, although subtle. Acidity? Yes, the giver of life now and into the future.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Chardonnay Bien Nacido Block UU comes from a great vineyard located just east of the town of Santa Maria and was brought up in 20% new French oak. A classic Bien Nacido bouquet of honeyed orchard fruits, crushed rocks, oyster shells, and white flowers flow to a rich, beautifully textured, concentrated Chardonnay that has everything you could want from this variety. With terrific balance, nicely integrated acidity, and a great finish, it's brilliant stuff that should evolve gracefully for 5-7 years." (10/2018) 92 points ...

Wine Enthusiast: "Made in large quantities at a fair price, this wine delivers plenty of body and flavors, including 8% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot. Smoky oak supports a soft supple texture of midpalate intensity and rich red fruit. (VB)" (08/2019)

Wine Spectator: "A compact style, offering lemon, apple and light spice flavors that take on a tactile feel on the finish. Offers just a hint of citrus peel bitterness for lift. Drink now.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crisp and luminous, the 2016 Langhe Rossj-Bass is Chardonnay enhanced with a tiny part Sauvignon Blanc. This second grape only constitutes 5% of the blend, yet its presence is felt in a big way. The wine presents pristine and sharply delineated tones of exotic fruit, peach and white rose. Fruit is sourced in Barbaresco and in Serralunga d'Alba. This wine delivers a bright spot of acidity that was shaped by the steep diurnal temperature shifts that characterized the tail end of the growing season. Much work has be...

On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and succulent, with a deep, juicy core, lovely cut and stony grip and a long finish. Eric Baugher observes that it comes in at just over 14% alcohol and saw a mere 8% new oak. (WK)" (05/2018) 95 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Monte Bello is a...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Peter Zemmer makes bold wines that are determined in their territorial identity. The 2016 Alto Adige Chardonnay Riserva Crivelli offers a strong citrus character with lemon curd and grapefruit concentrate. Those are the high notes, but the low notes veer toward toasted almond and pine nut. The wine opens to an off-gold color with spice and natural rubber. Despite the delicate bouquet, the wine fans over the palate to reveal a firm, mid-weight palate. Only 4,000 bottles were made.ML" (08/2018) 91 points James Su...

The Lafond vineyard is a valued source of fruit for such Riesling revivalists as Tatomer and Maiden Stoen. Santa Barbara Winery's 2016 version has a pH of 3.03. Winemaker's comments: "This is the last crop from our old Block of Riesling. Planted in 1972, this 46 year old Block was declining from drought and nematodes. Aged 'Sur Lie' with 'Batonage' for mid palate texture. The concentrated fruit is carried with bright acidity. It will develop with age for years."

If you haven’t yet heard about or tasted the wines from Cole Thomas at Madson, that’s likely because they are so tiny, many of their wines are just a barrel or two! In fact, if you look on their website, almost everything is sold out! However, once you have tasted their wines, you won’t quickly forget them.
