    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    "The epitome of Grand Cru Chablis, this is mineral and fruit driven—impressive both from its richness and its tense structure. The power comes from the depth of flavor that brings the texture right through the wine."

    94 points / Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast, Nov 2012

     

    "There is excellent freshness to the airy and cool aromas that are unmistakably Chablis in character with a mix of white orchard fruit aromas along with oyster shell, iodine and algae hints. There is solid density to the beautifully vibrant and intensely mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess real character on the wonderfully clean, bone dry and strikingly persistent finish. This is still very much a baby and should be held for a minimum of another 2 to 5 years. Impressive."

    Domaine Gerard Tremblay

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

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Pasta, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    Intense aromas of honey and ripe fruit, rose and white flowers.  Its flavors are velvety, ample and long.

    Grand Cru Vaudésir is divided into two parts by the track called “le chemin des Vaudésirs”.  Roughly half of its vines face due south, whilst the remainder face south-west. It is very steep in places, its soil type seems rather lighter than most, and contains less lime. This increasing “earthiness” tends to mark the wines, which can be drunk young if one is looking for crispness. The full structure of the wines will take several years to develop however, as with all the Grands Crus. Their extreme delicacy has given Vaudésir the reputation of being the most feminine of all the climates.

    Duck breast


    The 2018 Chardonnay Cuvée Alyce opens slowly to lovely aromas of warm peaches and apricots with accents of toast, roasted almonds and honey. The medium-bodied palate is silky, super concentrated, layered and fresh, cut through with uplifting mineral character and finishing very, very long. Gorgeous! 1,154 cases produced.

    Cade

    California (USA), Napa Valley (USA)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Risotto, Roasted Vegetables, Salad, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    The 2019 has aromas of pineapple, tangerine, honeydew melon, yellow apple, peach blossom, lime, white flowers, and cantaloupe. The wine has flavors of pear, lemon, lime zest, orange peel, cream soda, toasted nuts, citrus, lemon meringue, and grapefruit. There is a touch of minerality in the palate, but the wine has a mid palate that is rounded and a touch creamy, but it finishes with a tangy citrus like acidity. The barrel fermentations add texture, density, and viscosity to the mid palate of the wine.

    Domaine de l'Enclos

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    Source from vines planted in the 60s, 80s, and 90s. The La Fourchaume 1er Cru is superb. Rich and ample with tremendous structure, the 2018 possesses terrific depth and textural resonance throughout the finish. Orchard fruit, lemon confit, almond and menthol infuse the 2018 with notable complexity and intensity. Textured, oily and deep with a bit of a savory edge, the 2018 has so much to offer. > Learn More

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Scallop, White Meat


    "Discreet wood and matchstick influences frame pretty aromas of apple and citrus. There is excellent volume to the intense and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess even better depth and persistence on the dry but not austere finale. This too is well-worth checking out."

    Weingut Vollenweider

    Germany (Germany), Mosel (Germany)

    12 x 750 ml

    Breads, Ham, Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Sweets


    The 2019er Wolfer Goldgrube Riesling Spätlese was made from fruit partially affected by botrytis (20%) picked at 96° Oechsle, and was fermented down to sweet levels of residual sugar (92 g/l). It offers a rather backward nose made of pear, mirabelle, whipped cream, a hint of fresh pineapple, and plenty of smoke and wet stone. The wine is gorgeously and finely sizzled on the palate, where subtle flavors of lemon, apricot blossom, white pepper, and herbs woe for one’s attention. The finish is all about subtle creamy and zesty finesse, and this despite the comparatively high sugar levels of the must. This gorgeous “feine Auslese” expression of Riesling is simply to die for. We would not be surprised if it would eventually warrant an even higher rating, such is its potential. What a wine! 2029-2049

    "A beautifully layered, medium-bodied white, with intertwining mango, pureed pineapple and tangerine notes that are honey-kissed and matched to floral, baking spice and mineral details. Lingering finish."

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.
