    Domaine Pascal Bouchard

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Bouchard’s old-vine cuvee casts textbook Chablis aromas of high toned chalky minerals, freshly grated lemon zest and sweet butter. Lithe and sprightly on the palate, the Chablis’ brilliant acidity and smoky, flinty mineral spine lift its core of buttery citrus fruit. The wine’s old-vine quality comes to the fore on its long, flinty, soil-inflected finish. Showing impressive grip, persistent minerality, resinous old-vine fruit and a most comfortable price point, this a superb choice for pairing with shell fish, light fish dishes, vegetable souffles, or to serve as an aperitif. > Learn More

    Domaine de la Villaudière

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Sancerre, in the upper Loire Valley, is the benchmark for Sauvignon Blanc in Europe — crisp and fruity, with racy acidity. The soil is composed of limestone and fossilized seashells, which gives the wine an unmistakable minerality. This wine displays a limpid, pale yellow hue with golden highlights. Expressive on the nose, combining floral fragrances with aromas of white peach and exotic fruit (pineapple, passion fruit). Well-balanced and honest on entry, the wine is underpinned by freshness and powerful, long-lasting acidity on the finish, revealing a lovely minerality.

    $419.40

    Rijckaert

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    "Slightly more evident wood influence still allows the ripe and expressive aromas of citrus, peach and pear to be appreciated before marrying into impressively concentrated and textured flavors that are almost painfully intense while offering notably better complexity and persistence. This is excellent and worth considering."

    Domaine de Montbourgeau

    France (France), Jura (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    “Delicious Chardonnay from Jura, in an oxidative style: aromas of bruised apple, nuts, maple syrup and butter pear. The mouth is marked by the same flavours, carried by a fresh acidity, with notes of dried fruits and buckwheat honey. To try with an open mind if you’re not familiar with the style, but so cool. A wine with a bit of bang; a match like no other for maple poultry, chicken with curry or morels, and simply stunning with Comté cheese.” - Véronique Rivest

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Somewhat seductive, like the wine maker himself, this is a charming, rich, focused and delightful white. The wine has a fresh backbone of acidity, clean flavors, and an excellent balance. A most refreshing quaff and one that is great value. > Learn More

    Domaine Dampt

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Daniel Dampt makes very pure, intense Chablis. Oak casks have never been used for ageing his wine, allowing the individual Chardonnay character, grown on stony hillsides, to be crystal-clear. this 2015 has fresh, pure, lemony aromas, the palate being rich, yet taut, bright and lively. This is a brilliant, vibrant wine with excellent length, ready for immediate drinking. > Learn More

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.
