    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."

  2. New Condrieu Chery by Andre Perret 2016

    $744.00

    Andre Perret

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Coming largely from 80-year-old vines in the Coteau du Chery, Perret's 2016 Condrieu Chery is a tremendous effort. The decomposed granite soils seem to impart more tension into the wine, so although this medium to full-bodied wine is rich and fruity, it's also lively, spicy and fresh. Floral and apricot aromas lead the way, followed by a silky-textured palate that never seems heavy and a nearly never-ending finish. Just wow."

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    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."

    Andre Perret

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "Green-tinged straw-yellow. Intensely perfumed aromas of fresh orchard and pit fruits are enlivened by orange pith and smoky mineral notes that gain strength with aeration. Sappy white peach and pear flavors show excellent clarity and zesty back-end cut. Smooth and focused on the persistent finish, which features a lingering violet note and a hint of honeysuckle."

    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."

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


    "Lime blossom, citronella, toast, vanilla and citrus flavors pervade this sleek, tense white. Opens with air, staying focused and long on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2024."

    Weingut Gross

    Slovenia (Slovenia), Styria (Slovenia)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    Complex bouquet of orange and lemon zest, tropical fruits as well as a sprinkling of vanilla and fennel. Solid backbone with a flinty, mouth watering acidity and a well integrated oaky touch adding some complexity. This is a beautifully concentrated, intense wine with a lingering finish.

  9. New Chablis 1er Cru Montmains Les Vieilles Vignes by Pascal Bouchard 2012 Chablis 1er Cru Montmains Les Vieilles Vignes by Pascal Bouchard 2012

    $354.00

    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Burgundy (France), Chablis (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Vegetables, White Meat


    "A concentrated, rich wine, very mineral and textured in character. It comes from old vines that give a dense character and layers of citrus, apple and yellow fruit flavors. A strong steely edge, very taut, still shows the wine's youth. Drink from 2018."

    94 points / Editor's Choice - Wine Enthusiast, Dec 2014

     

    This wine is ideal with fish or white meat in sauce. Serve between 10 and 12°C.

    Weingut Vollenweider

    Germany (Germany), Mosel (Germany)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Sweets


    "You only sense the ripeness on the nose because this is still tightly reined-in. On the palate, peachy fruit and the textural richness are very impressive. The wine keeps pumping out the ripe fruit right to the mineral fireworks display at the finish. Better from 2018 or any time during the next decade is good."

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.
