    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "Pale primrose with a really elegant nose, with a very pretty touch of reduction. Really marries in extremely well. Lemon and lime notes, a little too yellow to be greengage, a lovely thread of concentration. Very good."

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "No frost here. Pale primrose, a touch of the mirabelle plums, more fruit than floral. Then the quality of the appellation kicks in on the palate, lovely interwoven acidity with the texture, very long finish."

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, White Meat


    "This lieu-dit tends to produce rich, gastronomic Meursaults, and it has certainly done so in 2016. A classic bouquet of poached pear, peach and oatmeal precedes a full-bodied, ample palate. It is multidimensional and detailed, and underpinned by juicy acids which balance the site’s inherent voluminousness. This will deliver a lot of pleasure at the table."

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "The young vines fared well but the grapes were still sold off as per normal practice here. The older vines were 70% down in volume. Lovely light lemon, with a fine stylish nose. This is precise, chiselled even, with a lovely nuanced, graceful mid palate and a fine finish integrating fruit and acidity. Very good."

  8. New Assyrtiko Thalassitis by Gaia 2017

    $257.70

    Gaia

    Greece (Greece), Santorini (Greece)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese


    "The 2017 Thalassitis is an unoaked Assyrtiko coming in at 13% alcohol. This is a bottling I usually prize for its freshness, elegance and lively demeanor. This year, one in which the wines could have a lot of concentration if you could avoid heat spikes, it has all of those things still, but it seems to lean to a deeper style instead of an exhilarating one. Overall, it finishes with a big hit of fruit, nicely supported by its acidity. On the first day tasted, it was a bit stolid. The next day, it reminded me of Thalassitis again—big acidity slicing and dicing that fruit, even in a year when it seems very dense and ripe. The score went up notably. The gripping and tense finish, by the way, seems endless. This does lack its usual finesse, so we'll see where it goes when it unfolds. This does have some things to prove in the cellar. In the new Santorini Assyrtiko trend, it is no longer acceptable to make wines that just drink well for five years, at least not if you want to be at the top of your game. It mostly seems pretty super, and it is worth leaning up right now."

    Prominent note of fresh apples intermingle with pears and white flower petals with an ever-so slight hint of oak. The vibrant palate has a hearty structure and elegant fruit characteristics. Soft finish with a hint of oak and minerals. > Learn More

    Weingut Gross

    Slovenia (Slovenia), Styria (Slovenia)

    6 x 750 ml

    Breads, Cured Meat, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    A rich, expressive but precise wine with engaging aromas of honey, quince, white flowers, grapefruit and apricot. There's a further hit of stone fruit on the palate which is built around a pure mineral backbone, with decorations of jasmine, lees and citrus.

At WineOnline.ca we absolutely love white wine. White grapes, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Viognier, Verdejo, Riesling, Garganega etc, (there are 1000’s more), produce roughly the same quantity of grapes as their red counterparts, but for reasons unknown, many people believe a good white wine should cost less than a quality bottle of red wine. A quality white wine typically takes as much time and energy to produce as a quality red wine. Neither must be expensive, but to expect more quality from a popular white wine for less money than a red, does not make sense.

Of course, white wines can be all over the map. There is sweet white wine, the most famous of which is, of course, Sauternes which is produced in Bordeaux. Sauternes is produced from the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes, though you will never see Sauvignon Blanc or Semillon written on the label. Chateau Yquem would be the most recognizable name/producer in Sauternes, and of course, the most expensive of the Sauternes producers. The Hungarian version of iconic sweet wine, is Tokaj, which is perhaps not quite as famous, but equally delicious. There are dry white wines which are produced all over the world, but many would suggest the best dry white wine is produced in Burgundy, with the most popular white wine produced in Burgundian churning out Montrachet or derivatives of Montrachet, such as Batard Monthrachet, or Bievenue Batard Montrachet. All of the white wine in Burgundy is produced from the Chardonnay grape, though once again, you will rarely, if ever, see Chardonnay written on the label. If you are looking for a different style of Chardonnay, perhaps something oakier, you may want to consider finding great white wine types in different areas of California. Napa Chardonnay, or Chardonnay from Santa Barbara are a couple of the more famous areas for production. If you are looking for the best white wine, you might consider looking in Spain, Portugal, Italy or even South America. There are countless good white wine produced in the Mediterranean countries where they often consume more white wine than red. I believe there are a number of reasons for this. 1st of all, it is typically very warm and people want to drink something cool and refreshing, 2nd, there is a lot of fishing and it is hard to argue that white wine does not go better with fish than red wine.

Some white wine lovers might suggest the best Sauvignon Blanc comes from New Zealand, my personal favourite regions for Sauvignon Blanc production are Sancerre and even those from Southern Austria and Slovenia. I must impress on you that I am of the opinion that best is always in the eye of taste buds of the wine drinker. There is no right or wrong, and only opinion. Whether you like bold white wines, or elegant light white wines, sweet white wine, or dry, at WineOnline.ca we scour the world to ensure you are drinking the best, and the best value white wines there are anywhere.
