Joseph Drouhin LaforetBorgogne, France 2006
100% Chardonnay
Review by Richard Kinssies,Seattle Press
 Drouhin is one of the most respected pro-ducers in Burgundy, and the Laforet linealways is a good value, but this particular wine delivers much more than expected.Technically a Borgogne chardonnay isthe most generic of all white wines fromthe region and can be made from grapesgrown anywhere within its limits. But what makes thisDrouhin so exiting is that the grapes used for the wine
may include some young vines from the rm’s holdings
in Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet, which are amongthe best in the region (some Pulignys are priced around$100).
Attractive complexity with aromas and avors that recall
lemon drops, apple, citrus, minerals and nuts such as
almonds. Try it with grilled vegetables, sh, chicken and
 pasta salads.
Paul Jaboulet Le Pet Jaboulet ViognierVin de Pays, Portes de Mediterranee,
France, 2007
100% Viognier
Review by Jancis Robinson
“...This modest Vin de Pays actually tastesmuch more impressive than the consider-ably more expensive Jaboulet Condrieu
2007. I dare say that in a year’s time the
Condrieu will still be going strong whilethe Petit Jaboulet Viognier will be wav-ing a wistful farewell. But this particular Viognier, sourced deliberately from the
northern rather than the southern Rhône – chiey from
vineyards around Montélimar - is certainly looking mostattractive at the moment.I was impressed by its smoky, convincing north Rhône
Viognier nose with real depth of avour and some earthi
-
ness – denitely more reminiscent of Condrieu than of one
of those air freshener-like Languedoc varietal Viogniers.
The nish is attractively dry too. Not a bad buy at all.”
Adegas Galegas Veigadares
Rias Baixas, Spain, 2007
85% Albarino, 10% Treixadura,5% Loureiro
90,Wine Spectator
 Fermented and aged in French oak for sixmonths. This ambitious Albarino (thesewines rarely see oak) is light gold in color with a slight green tint. It offers up an at-tractive bouquet of baking spices, mineral,and lemon meringue with the oak nicelyintegrated. It has a creamy texture, excel-
lent depth of avor, and a fruit-lled nish.
Drink this well made Albarino over the next 2-3 years.
Miguel Torres Cordillera ChardonnayCuricó Valley, Chile 2003
100% Chardonnay
Silver MedalConcours Mondial Bruxelles
From the foothills of the Cordillera thisChardonnay offers a generous nose withhighlights of apple and hazelnut fruitaromas, typical of the specially selectedChardonnay clones. These are comple-
mented by ne nuances of toasted bread
and vanilla. The palate is meaty anddense, well outlined by delicate acidity.
Its long nish emphasises elegant, spicynuances and a toastiness typical of Nevers oak. Sublime
with caviar. An ideal accompaniment to trout, smoked
salmon, fresh shellsh, baked sh or sh cooked in
sauce.
Domaine Jean Busquet ChardonnayMendoza, Argenna 2007
100% Organic Chardonnay
88, Wine AdvocateBest Value, Wine Spectator
Unwooded Chardonnay with light yellowcolor and green hues. Rich fresh tropical
fruit aromas with citrus and oral notes.
Concentrated apple, pear and lime with
a slight tone of sweet spice. The nish is
clean and fresh with a crisp acidity. Idealfor appetizers, seafood and
sh dishes.
 
Chateau St Jean Chardonnay,Sonoma, California 2008
100% Chardonnay
This is Sonoma County Chardonnaythrough and through - with stone fruitaromas kissed by pineapple and mangosweetness, and a heart bursting with
 pear, melon and cream avoars. Classic
winemaking techniques including barrel
fermentation and ve months of sur lie
aging in small French and American oak  barrels impart richness and complexityto the wine. The majority of the blendunderwent malolactic fermentation.
Bonterra ChardonnayMendocino County, California 2007
100% Organic Chardonnay
A hint of oak complements the freshnessof fruit and the evident notes of green ap- ple, pear and citrus. This wine is aged for several months to develop a rich, creamytexture that gracefully balances its fruit-forward character.
There’s a touch of vanilla from the dol
-lop of new Oak, but this wine is aged inmostly neutral barrels to let the fruit shinethrough. An initial impression of rich, buttery cream quickly turns to aromas of honey andlightly toasted almonds, followed quickly by tropicalaromas of pineapple, citrusy lemon and Crème Brûlée.
Clos Pegase “Mitsuko” ChardonnayCarneros / Napa Valley, California 2005
100% Chardonnay
Mitsuko’s Vineyard is located in the cool
Carneros region. For the 2005 vintage,the Heritage clones form the core of the blend at 50%: Wente for weight andacidity, Atlas Peak for tropical notes,and Rued for lifted aromatics. Second in
signicance are the Dijon Clones; broad,
rich and complex, in the blend at 45%this year. Lastly, 5% comes from theelegant and tropical California Clone 4.

Chateau D’Esclans Whispering Angel,Cotes de Provence, France 2007
Grenache / Rollé
89, Wine Spectator
There’s a crystal clarity to the berry andcherry avors. Powerful, almost tannic,
with plenty of mineral and spice notes.
The long nish lingers with white pep
- per and wisps of red peach. Drink nowthrough 2011. 7,280 cases made.This is the young wine from the impres-sive portfolio of rosés by Sacha Lich-
ine, one of the world’s most prestigious rosé focused
winemakers. WL~
Laurent Perrier Cuvee Rose BrutChampagne, France NV
100% Pinot Noir from ten Grand Cruvineyards
The best selling rosé Champagne in
the world, Laurent-Perrier’s Cuvée
Rosé Brut is one of the few rosésstill made by the saignée method. Toemphasize this traditional technique,the Champagne is elegantly show-cased in an embossed bottle that is areproduction of those used in the late17th century.This salmon-pink rosé Champagne is truly remark-able for its highly expressive bouquet, stemming fromvery careful preservation of fresh fruit aromas whichoccur during the winemaking. Using skin contact with
100% Pinot Noir grapes, also known as the saignéemethod, Laurent-Perrier’s know-how and attention toquality produces a nely crafted rosé with both depth
and freshness. It has become the benchmark for roséChampagne around the world.Unlike most rosé Champagnes, the base of Laurent-Perrier Cuvée Rosé Brut is obtained by drawing juiceoff of the grapes in the vat, rather than simply blend-ing red and white wines. Cellaring length varies andis dependent on the wine in order to preserve its freshred fruit aromas.
