Francois Carillon Bourgogne Cote d'Or Chardonnay 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Bourgogne, Burgundy

“The first to be picked. The wine has not yet fallen clear. Perfectly balanced with a good natural acidity, a light barrel toast, plenty of white fruit, and a good long finish. Succulent more than sumptuous, but certainly very good. Drink from 2024- 2026.” 87-89, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy, Oct 2022

Joseph Drouhin Meursault 2020, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Meursault, Burgundy

“A classically structured wine for this appellation with the weight and round generosity that we expect from it, but with plenty of bright citrus and pear fruit, something these wines can lack a bit of. Good depth with an excellent integration of chalky minerality and healthy acidity at the long and delicate finish. With aeration a touch of vanilla bean develops on the nose. Drink or hold.” 93, James Suckling, Sep 2022

The villages level bottlings of both white and red wines at Maison Drouhin have been getting better and better with each passing vintage, and the 2020 Meursault is no exception. This is a lovely wine, offering up a ripe and very refined bouquet of apple, tangerine, hazelnuts, fruit blossoms, a fine base of chalky soil and a nice base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full, complex and succulent at the core, with a lovely girdle of acidity, impeccable balance and a long, vibrant and quite classic finish.

Paul Lato Chardonnay 'Matinee' Santa Barbara County 2022, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Santa Barbara County, California

“In order to make wines of the highest caliber, I select unique vineyards that are cared for by talented vineyard managers committed to excellence. I strive to locate and source from not only the best vineyards but the best blocks within each of these vineyards. During the growing season, yields are restricted to achieve maximum concentration of flavor. Harvest is based on physiological ripeness, which changes depending on the vintage characteristics.
Cellar work is based on minimal intervention, cleanliness and purity of intention. Because every vintage is different, I do not believe in recipes. With due respect to science, I do believe that true artisanal winemaking is based on intuition, sensitivity and passion. Keeping the lots small allows for gentle handling throughout the winemaking process.
I want my wines to give pleasure and keep your palate interested until the last drop from the bottle – I hope you like them at first sip and love them at the last.”  Producer Notes

Pyramid Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 'Field of Fire' 2020, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Canterbury, South Island

“The 2020 Field Of Fire Chardonnay is flinty and spiced, layered with curry leaf, tobacco, brine, preserved citrus rind and hints of crushed nuts. In the mouth, the wine is rich and undulating and saturating. The fruit is wrapped around a core of scintillating acidity—it really penetrates the palate and touches the soul. It plays a defibrillation role within the fruit. We all have different preferences in wine, but I am absolutely turned on by the fruit and acid interplay here. Thrilling. Detailed. Rich. Bunch weights can be almost double the Lion's Tooth bunches. I asked Steve Smith, MW, ‘How big is big?’ A laugh, in response, then he says, ‘Well, we get clone 95 bunches coming in sometimes at 120 grams (maximum) and Mendoza between 50- and 80-gram bunches.’ Winemaker Huw Kimsch explains, ‘The bunches are about 30% or more smaller in the Lion's Tooth Vineyard.’ The wine spent 22 months in barrel and four months in tank prior to bottling. Due to wild ferments, it struggled to get through full malolactic fermentation. This is a wonderful thing, I feel. It's an exciting drink. The pH is around three, total acidity is around eight.”

Delamotte Blanc de Blancs Brut 2014, 0.75L

“The 2014 Blanc de Blancs is seriously impressive. Ample in feel, Delamotte is especially rich in 2014, and yet there is plenty of freshness to balance things out. This is an especially savory style for Delamotte, and one that works so well. Dried lemon peel, pastry, almond, dried herbs and chamomile open in a beautifully translucent Blanc des Blancs that marries power and finesse.

"The NV Extra Brut Garennes 13-21 is a blend of Pinots Noir and Meunier and Chardonnay from 2013 through to 2021 from Chambrecy, Damery, Cumières and Hauvillers. The scented nose gives hints of plum and tart but ripe, red apple with rounded, smooth, creamy oakiness. Frothy mousse expands on a salty, profound body that exudes chalk, tart apple flesh and even more salty sourdough crumb. Beautifully taut, wonderfully stony and with a real, beautiful and bracing line of freshness. Bright, savory and with proper length. Dosage is 1gr/L." 94 Anne Krebiehl MW, Vinous

Racines Sparkling Chardonnay Grand Reserve (LGR19-2) NV, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Sta. Rita Hills, California

"This is the best American sparkling wine I've ever tasted. The 2019 vintage base also includes 25% reserve wines from the 2017 and 2018 harvests. This Grand Reserve Chardonnay made from the cool Sta Rita Hills is crafted with a Champagne pedigree, and it shows. This Blanc de Blancs from across renowned Sta Rita Hills vineyards has undeniable Old World charm and sophistication. The aromatics boast ample toasted biscuit notes and great yeasty complexity from the 30 months on lees. The palate has a fantastic depth of fruit, spiced pear, cardamom, nutmeg and bruised apples. There is a subtlety of savoury biscuits and hints of almond cream. Elegant, yet bold and wildly delicious." 96 Clive Pursehouse, Decanter Magazine

"The NV Chardonnay Grand Reserve (Sparkling) is compelling, especially in the way it straddles the line between still and sparkling wine. Creamy and resonant in the glass, the Grande Reserve is laced with apricot, white flowers and chamomile. This is a superb showing for the entry-level wine in what will soon be a range of sparklers from Racines. This release is a blend of fruit from Wenzlau, Bentrock, La Rinconada and Sanford & Benedict .... These new releases from Etienne de Montille’s Racines kick off with the first sparkling wine made in collaboration with Rodolphe Péters. The new Grande Reserve, all 2018 in its first release, will gradually become a multi-vintage blend in the style of Péters’s Cuvée de Réserve Champagne." 93 Antonio Galloni, Vinous

"The village-level Saint-Aubin from Domaine Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey features green apple and grapefruit aromas with spice from the cask fermentation. The texture is silky and round, avoiding any tart or acerbic sensations and lingering on the palate. The grapes are a blend of three parcels from his fifty-year-old vines in the south-facing but high-altitude lieu-dit Le Blanc with a parcel in En Choilles. Colin presses the grapes very gently as whole clusters and racks to barrel without settling before fermenting in cask on native yeasts." 91 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter Magazine

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chassagne Montrachet, Burgundy

"The vineyards farmed by the domaine were so badly damaged by frost and rain in 2021 that the premier cru parcels in Chassagne (like the village-level vines) were blended together. At the premier cru level this includes Chenevottes, Caillerets, and Abbaye de Morgeot; the result was seven barrels instead of 25, but the quality of what remained was tremendous, with ripe apple and pear fruit aromas kissed with a floral edge and a firm mineral note. The texture showed pleasant density and nice 'shoulders' – admirable length, breadth and substance. This is impressive wine by any measure." 95 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter Magazine

"This is the first and only time Pierre-Yves will make this cuvée. It is a direct product of the miserly yields in Abbaye de Morgeot, Chenevottes and Baudines, all of which were vinified more or less separately. Dense, pretty and crystalline in fruit purity, the focused citrus and white peach fruits extended into a long finish. This could use a few years to relax." 94 Christy Canterbury MW, TimAtkin.com

Caroline Morey Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chassagne Montrachet, Burgundy

"The 2021 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru is almost entirely from Champs Gain and Vergers. It has a clean and precise bouquet, quite focused, not powerful but nicely delineated. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins that frame orchard fruit, bitter lemon and orange rind notes. Good weight and concentration here with quite a persistent and convincing finish. Good potential. This is my inaugural exploration of the wines of Caroline Morey, aka Pierre-Yves Colin’s ‘better half.’ The wines were inherited from her family and hewn from a different cloth, even though they have been made in the same winery in Chassagne since 2017. The one major difference compared to PYCM is that she uses slightly less new oak, around 20-25% instead of 30-35% - not to mention half-a-dozen reds. Readers should note that the 2021 Chassagne-Montrachet Village includes fruit from declassified Premier Crus from Les Caillerets and Chaumées. Pierre-Yves explains the approach to the reds: ‘The reds undergo little extraction, and Caroline did not pursue more colour or tannins; all the cuvées include 30% to 50% whole bunches with a maximum two-week cuvaison during which there are only two or three pigeage and a little remontage. There is also a shorter barrel maturation; they’re racked in October, blended in tank and bottled in January.’" 91-93 Neal Martin, Vinous

"A blend of Champgains and Vergers with a bare smidgin of Caillerets and Chaumées. The first two managed a good half crop after successful protection. Clear pale colour, the nose suggests fair weight without giving detail. Really very pretty on the nose, crisp limestone style, slightly saline, fresh and persistent." 91-93 Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy

Daniel-Etienne Defaix Domaine du Vieux Château Chablis Les Lys. 2010, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Chablis, Burgundy

"Les Lys is a tiny five-hectare cru of which Defaix owns three and a half hectares, all in a southeast-facing section called Clos du Roi—effectively a monopole of the domaine. Its poor soils of pure Kimmeridgian limestone produce perhaps the most complete and distinctive wine in Defaix’s cellar. Combining some of the power of the “Vaillon” with the chalky intensity of the “Côte de Lechet,” “Les Lys” ratchets up the aromatic complexity of the previous two, yet comes across as pure and harmonious. The palate offers ample richness, yet a sense of tension keeps it from feeling opulent, and the chiseled finish offers a strong sensation of dry extract." Rosenthal Wine Merchant

Chardonnay from Sta. Rita Hills, California

"Our estate-grown Chardonnay fruit was picked and hand-sorted in the vineyard before spending the night in our cold room. Chilled grapes were softly pressed, and the juice was gently pumped into a stainless-steel tank and cold settled. Once the heavy solids were removed, the juice was racked to a stainless steel fer mentor, then inoculated for primary fermentation. Following primary fermentation, the wine was racked to barrels, inoculated for malolactic fermentation, then periodically stirred to enhance depth and mouthfeel. The 2019 Sea Smoke Chardonnay was aged for a total of 10 months prior to bottling with no fining and no filtration.” Winery Notes

“The nose of the NV Champagne Grand Cru Conversation Brut lifts with a stylistically sweet perfume that translates through the entire range. It offers notes of sweet pastry, ripe peach, and honeydew melon, and the palate is medium-bodied and has ripe juicy fruit as well as a kiss of sweetness, with green apple candy, key lime, and white flowers. Approachable now, it would make a wonderful aperitif or an after dinner reset, given there is a hint of that generosity from the dosage. Drink over the next 8-10 years.”

Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Rare Brut 2013, 0.75L
Chardonnay / Pinot Noir from Champagne, Champagne

"70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir. The 2013 vintage is so very Rare, so pure. True to the classical Rare recipe its Chardonnay origins include a luxurious amount of Villers-Marmery and Côte de Blancs Grand Cru fruit, without forgetting the all-important ‘spice’ of Montgueux. The Pinot Noir mix plays with the cool verticality of Verzy and Verzenay, but on a crisp year like this more generosity was lent from for example plush Ambonnay and Bouzy fruit. Intense, shiny bright lemon-green colour. Stunningly refined toasty nose with fine herbal freshness, lemon and birch leaves. There is a lovely vanilla-laden exotic spicy touch to the pineapple and peach fruitiness. Creamy-caressing and salivatingly energetic at the same time. There is a lovely ethereal lightness to the airy whole. Perfectly pure and compact, promising extreme longevity and capacity for majestic complexity." 96-99 Essi Avellan MW

Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Au Bout du Monde 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, Burgundy

"The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc from PYCM features lovely aromas of grapefruit, lime zest, and fresh white flowers. The texture is light but crisp, and a salty minerality shines through on the palate. The grapes come from three parcels in the Hautes Côtes, named for a nearby nature preserve in Cormot-Vauchignon at over 400 metres elevation—the delayed budbreak at this cool site saved these vines from damage during the frost of 2021. The grapes were fermented in large, older oak casks that have now been racked into tank. (Drink between 2023-2033)" 92 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter

Drappier Grande Sendree Brut 2010, 0.75L
Pinot Noir / Chardonnay from Champagne, Champagne

"Pale gold in colour. On entry there’s a steely floral and sweet smoke note and then an explosion of citrus oil and pale yellow fruits. It thrums with an embrace that gives a sense of so much to come, with good weight behind a svelte and elegant frame. Structured and still so youthful. The 2008 was monumental but this seems to have as much presence. Up there with any of Champagne’s prestige wines. 55% Pinot Noir, 45% Chardonnay. Single vineyard. 35% fermented in oak. Seven years on lees. Dosage: 5.5g/L. (Drink between 2022-2030)" 96 Tim Hall, Decanter

"The 2010 Brut Grande Sendrée has turned out very well indeed, unwinding in the glass with youthful aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, white peach and fresh bread. Medium to full-bodied, bright and concentrated, it's youthfully tightly wound, with a racy spine of acidity, an elegant pinpoint mousse and a penetrating, chalky finish. This can't quite match the plenitude of the 2009, but it may outpace it with time, as this is an impressively vibrant, structured young Grande Sendrée." 93+ William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Arnot-Roberts Chardonnay Watson Ranch 2022, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Napa Valley, California

"...Soils at Watson Ranch are composed of calcareous clay over limestone. This soil type is extremely rare on the North Coast but shows itself in a narrow fin at the tail end of the Vaca Mountains in Southern Napa County. This fractured, well-drained calcareous soil, coupled with organic farming and cool windy conditions, imbue this parcel with great potential to produce world-class Chardonnay. The fruit we harvest each year from Watson is consistently textural and vibrant with underpinnings of ample natural acidity and salinity." Producer Notes

Ramey Chardonnay Fort Ross-Seaview 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Fort Ross-Seaview, California

"Sourced entirely from Charles Ranch and pouring a pale straw color, the 2021 Chardonnay Fort Ross-Seaview is fresh and lifted with aromas of salted lime, sea spray, agave, and green pineapple. On the palate. this medium-bodied white is spritely with notes of crunchy fresh fruit and has a silky soft, stony texture to round out its linear drive. It’s fresh with vibrant energy and ripe fruit, white peach, and fresh flowers. Drink it over the next 6-8 years. Founded in 1996 by David and Carla Ramey, the Rameys are continuing to produce benchmark wines, while raising the bar for what Sonoma can achieve. In 2022, the Healdsburg-based winery was officially handed over to their children, Claire and Alan, who now share responsibility as co-presidents. During my tasting with Dave, Claire, and Alan, they arranged several side-by-side comparisons with reference point wines from other wine regions. The highlight of these comparisons came when I tasted the 2020 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard alongside the Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey 2020 Saint-Aubin Premier Cru En Remilly Hommage A Marguerite (94 points), as well as the Domaine Michelot 2020 Meursault Premier Cru Perrieres (92 points). While the Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey was wonderfully impressive and textural, the Hyde had fantastic purity and length by comparison. The Domaine Michelot has the structure to have some longevity but felt a touch weedy, which masked its otherwise purer characteristics of green apple, citrus, and toast. It fell short compared to the Hyde and the Saint-Aubin, which was surprising considering the pedigree of this Premiere Cru site from Meursault. The overarching theme across the tasting was the longevity and balanced nature of the wines from Ramey, which comes as less and less of a shock to me as I get to know their wines more intimately. Though I personally have an affinity for the whites, these wines offer tremendous value with age-worthiness across the portfolio." 93 Audrey Frick, JebDunnuck.com

Small Vines Chardonnay TBH Vineyard 2020, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Sonoma Coast, California

"The 2020 Chardonnay TBH Vineyard unfolds its initial flinty tones to reveal white peaches, Meyer lemon, orange blossom, beeswax and roasted almonds. Medium-bodied, the palate is ultra-concentrated, satiny and expansive, enlivened by tangy acidity, and it finishes with great length, detail and texture." 95 Erin Brooks, Wine Advocate

Bret Brothers Pouilly Fuisse En Terres de Vergisson 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Pouilly Fuissé, Burgundy

"This marvelously incisive Pouilly-Fuissé is a blend of two parcels in Vergisson with two different soil types; both are cool terroirs that bring an exotic tropical note of passionfruit and pomelo to the wine along with a strong mineral underpinning. The texture has a lively acidity, but there is real ripeness to give the wines a delicious dynamic balance. The grapes are pressed as whole clusters, and the juice is fermented in older oak casks. (Drink between 2023-2033)" 92 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter

Bret Brothers La Soufrandiere Saint-Veran La Bonnode Ovoide Cuvée Zen 2021, 0.75L
Chardonnay from Saint-Véran, Burgundy

“This cuvée comes from grapes grown at the foot of the rock of Vergisson. There is a lovely, salty mineral edge to the apricot and nectarine fruit aromas, and a dynamic, lively balance on the palate that draws the wine to a lingering finish. The wine is fermented and aged in concrete eggs and finished with six more months of ageing in tank. The result marries complexity with superb purity of fruit.” 92 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter Magazine
