  1. New Puligny-Montrachet Villages by Domaine Bachelet Monnot 2017

    $744.00

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Light, bright yellow. Aromas of white peach, noble herbs and toasty oak are lifted by a stony quality (none of these '17s show any exotic character). Fine-grained, concentrated wine with sweet flavors of stone fruits and white flowers nicely framed by harmonious acidity. This wine really benefited from the dry growing season, noted Alexandre Bachelet, who added that its pH is 3.1, about the same as that of the village Chassagne. Offers good density and grip for village wine."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Quite a lot of floral fragrance and lovely white fruit too. Strong saline stony character on the finish – very concentrated and lengthy, with archetypical nervy acidity."

  2. New Chassagne-Montrachet Villages by Domaine Bachelet Monnot 2017

    $654.00

    Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Pasta, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    "(made from six parcels located "next to" the premier and grand crus of Chassagne-Montrachet, according to Alexandre Bachelet, who added that about half of these vines are less than 30 years old): Distinctly floral, pure scents of pear, white peach and menthol; showing well today thanks to the earlier malolactic fermentation, which finished in February. Juicy and light on its feet, with its flavors of white peach, menthol and dusty stone displaying modest flesh but lovely precision. Finishes with very good lift. The Bachelets will rack this wine just before the 2018 harvest, but it will remain in stainless steel until bottling next March or April."
    88-91 points - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media, September 2018

     

    "Crisp white fruit without the sulphidic complexity of their Santenay, but loads of leesy, mealy character on the palate. Very savoury and very dry to finish – cries out for food."

    Domaine Rémi Niero

    France (France), Northern Rhône (France)

    6 x 750 ml

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


    "The 2017 Condrieu Chery offers slightly more stone fruits, white flowers, and crushed citrus, with plenty of spice and obvious minerality coming through with time in the glass. It's vibrant, fresh and elegant on the palate, with perfect balance. It's another high-quality wine from this estate."

    95 points - Jeb Dunnuck, Jan 2019

     
    "Niero's 2017 Condrieu Chéry comes from vines around 70 years old. It's floral and ripe, with apricot and pineapple flavors in a full-bodied but balanced format. Rich and plush on the palate, it showcases the opulent texture and decadent fruit of Viognier, yet it remains fresh and spicy on the long, harmonious finish."

    Quarry Road Gewürztraminer VQA by Tawse Winery 2017

    12.5% alc./vol.

    This is our heaviest crop of Quarry Road Vineyard Gewurztraminer yet. The grapes were picked later than usual and unlike previous vintages the juice was pressed off without any skin contact occurring. The nose has perfume like floral notes with ripe sweet guava aromas. A beautifully enveloping mouthfeel that is very smooth and well balanced accompanies flavours of peach compote and ripe quava. There is a noticeable sweetness on the finish.

     

    Limestone Ridge Riesling VQA by Tawse Winery 2017

    11% alc./vol.

    Crafted from hand-harvested grapes, it displays ripe aromas of green apple, pear and hints of sweet lime. Green apple notes carry through to the palate accompanied by a round mouthfeel and a lively finish.

     

    Carly's Block Riesling by Tawse Winery 2017

    11% alc./vol.

    The nose at first sniff is shy before opening up to reveal hints of anise, sweet citrus; mandarin in particular, crisp orchard apples and notes of river rock. On the tongue are notes of ripe pear to start followed by minerality and crisp acidity on the finish. Another stunning wine from Carly’s Block. Vegan Friendly.

    Quinta da Muradella

    Monterrei (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "Limpid, yellow-gold. A highly complex, mineral-laced bouquet evokes fresh citrus and orchard fruits, chalky minerals, sweet butter and white flowers. A hint of anise emerges with air. Shows noteworthy depth and sharp delineation in the mouth, offering vibrant orange zest, pear nectar, buttered toast and succulent herb flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful, yet graceful in character, displaying superb focus and mineral thrust on an impressively long finish that features lingering floral and orchard fruit flourishes. (Aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and used 500-liter French oak barrels.)"

    Bodega Classica

    Rioja (Spain), Spain (Spain)

    6 x 750 ml

    Vegetables, White Meat


    "One of a number of new projects at this restlessly innovative winery in San Vicente, this small lot white combines Viura with 20% each of Malvasía and Garnacha Blanca and spends 36 months in French oak. Rich and concentrated, yet comparatively low in alcohol, it has smoky wood, creamy lees and pithy acidity."

    6 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Risotto, Vegetables, White Meat


    The Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy from the dynamic Bouchard brothers has a classic mineral and gunflint profile. On the nose, there are delicate aromas of ripe citrus fruit, accompanied by smoky notes. There is a pleasant minerality on the long finish. It displays stunning purity of fruit and shows why Domaine de L'Enclos is one of the most exciting new domaines in Chablis.

    "Stand back and hold on to your hat! Brimming with lychee, rosehip and exotic floral notes. Very succulent and vibrant with a stunning interplay of racy acidity and juicy fruit on the very long and super fresh finish. Drink or hold."

  10. New Lenko Vineyard Chardonnay by Tawse Winery 2013

    $44.95

    Tawse Winery

    Canada (Canada), Niagara (Canada), Ontario (Canada)

    1 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    This is the second vintage Tawse has produced from the Lenko Chardonnay Vineyard, the oldest in the Niagara Region. Pioneers of Vinifera grape growing in this area, the Lenko family recognized the potential of the local terroir for growing Chardonnay. The combination of old vines and exceptional land results in a beautiful wine. Aging 12 months in 50% new French oak gives way to aromas of big oak, minerality and shy tropical fruit. The palate is tart and toasty with flavours of cantaloupe on the long smooth 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.
