  1. $419.40

    Marie-Pierre Manciat

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Hard Cheese, Rich Fish, Roasted Vegetables, Soft Cheese, Vegetables, White Meat


    "The 2012 Pouilly Fuissé les Petites Bruyeres comes from 30-year-old vines, fermented in both barrel and stainless steel where the wine matures for 11 months. It has a pretty bouquet with scents of lemon peel, freshly cut pear, nettle and limestone. The palate is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity, fine tension with a tightly wound, minerally finish that suggests two or three years in bottle will be required. This is an austere, but classy, Pouilly-Fuisse and I suspect it will age extremely well. This comes highly recommended."

  2. New Chablis 1er Cru Vau de Vey by Pascal Bouchard 2013

    $599.40

    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Perfumed and fruity, this shows touches of wood aging, although these are really just hints that lift the fruit. Acidity and a crisp, tangy texture are more important to this wine that bursts with concentrated citrus and green-plum flavors, finishing with so much freshness. Drink from 2017."

    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "An expressive nose offers up plenty of Chablis character with notes of sea breeze, oyster shell, iodine and citrus-infused white fruit scents. There is a very round mouth feel to the nicely detailed middle weight flavors that possess a clean and dry finish that delivers good if not truly special persistence. There is only average concentration but the balance is certainly good and on the plus side this is clearly from Chablis and I especially like the pungent minerality. Drink 2017+"

    "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."

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.
