    Château Haut Grelot

    Bordeaux (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Pale straw-yellow in color, elegant and crisp with intense exotic fruit aromas. Grapefruit, gooseberry and wild herbs intermingle on the nose with ample citrus fruit on the palate. This wine has a generous weight, round and in perfect balance. This wine is perfect to drink by itself or pair it with seafood, chicken, fresh salads and/or cheeses.

    "This is 90% sauvignon blanc. It has a lifted nose of celery, lemon-lime, wax and dried flowers. It is medium-full bodied, quite smooth and warm with lively acidity. There is some fruit richness here. Excellent length. It shows far more depth and vivacity than I expect from Bordeaux blanc at this price point."

  2. New Muscadet Les Vignes du Bourg by Domaine Julien Braud 2018

    $275.40

    Domaine Julien Braud

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Transparent light gold color, a pretty hue in the glass, perhaps an effect of Muscadet’s sur lie wine making in which the fermented yeast remains in the wine as it develops in fermenting tanks. Notes of pears and white flowers are accented by chalky notes on the nose and a distinct minerality in the dry, gently acidic, medium-bodied flavour. > Learn More

    Remoissenet

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    This wine is a fresh and welcoming Burgundy Blanc with delicate and nuanced scents of white stone fruit. The palate is at once full-bodied and mineral while offering great precision and a deliciously discreet touch of oak. Incredible value for Burgundy. > Learn More

  4. New Attitude Sauvignon Blanc by Pascal Jolivet 2018

    $299.40

    Pascal Jolivet

    France (France), Loire (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Ham, Rich Fish, Risotto, Salted or Marinated Mushrooms, Scallop, Soft Cheese, White Meat


    Made with the same attention to detail as Jolivet’s great Sancerres, this wine is made from grapes grown in Chevery, just to the west of Sancerre. The wine offers expressive floral and fruit aromas, freshness and minerality in the mouth. This is textbook Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire. > Learn More

  5. $335.40

    Domaine de Mauperthuis

    France (France), Saint-Bris (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    One of coolest Sauvignon Blanc wines we have ever tasted. This white wine made next door to Auxerre from the Sauvignon grape is often the colour of pale straw or light gold. Aromas are of citrus fruits (grapefruit, mandarin orange), peach, and crushed blackcurrant leaves with sometimes exotic scents (lychee). This complexity introduces a fruit which is full, flowery and tender, with a hint of salt and spice in the finish. Jammy and preserved-fruit aromas will appear as the wine ages. This is a wine that can be either enjoyed young or after having aged a few years. > Learn More

    Jean-Marc Burgaud

    Beaujolais (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

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


    Pale yellow-gold. Mineral-accented pear nectar and orange scents, along with subtle honeysuckle and fennel nuances. Smooth and weighty but lively as well, offering gently sweet orchard and pit fruit flavors that pick up toasted brioche and sweet butter notes on the back half. Finishes with firm, spicy cut, a hint of bitter pear skin and lingering florality.

    Domaine de Mauperthuis

    Chablis (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Rich Fish, Salad, Vegetables, White Meat


    From a new family (relatively speaking) to Chablis, the estate belongs to Marie-Noëlle & Laurent Ternynck. The old vines Chablis saw 12 months in foudres, on the lees, with fruit gathered from vineyards in Fleys. The cool spot comes with a higher altitude, on a windswept plateau and so harvest is generally five to six days later. And so their Chablis is cool, direct, taut and sapid stuff, as Chablis will go, from such a climat and handled so. Acidity runs rampant and travels quickly up and down and into parts of the mouth that stand up to take notice. Sharp and focused Chablis.

  9. New Chateau Fuisse Saint-Veran by JJ Vincent 2018

    $239.70

    JJ Vincent

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    6 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Rich Fish, Scallop, Soft Cheese


    A very opulent nose full of creamy peach and apricot fruit with a lovely zesty lemon peel note. Plenty of weight on the palate with juicy acidity which brings freshness and balance to the finish. > Learn More

  10. New Viré-Clessé Les Vercherres Vieilles Vignes by Rijckaert 2018

    $479.40

    Rijckaert

    Burgundy (France), France (France)

    12 x 750 ml

    Cured Meat, Duck breast, Ham, Rich Fish, Risotto, Scallop, Soft Cheese, Veal roasted, White Meat


    "A pungent nose of wood and strong reduction buries the underlying fruit at present. Otherwise there is very good volume to the even more vibrant flavors that possess fine mid-palate density while exhibiting fine length on the stony and bone dry finish that possesses just a bit more depth. Assuming the nose cleans up, and there is no reason not to, this should be lovely."

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.
