"This has nice cut, with piercing thyme, lemon zest, chive flower and sea salt notes that crackle through the tangy finish. A bit bony now, but should settle in nicely. Drink now through 2011. 1,400 cases imported. –JM"

"I must say that if you’re looking for clean, crisp, Chardonnay with wonderful minerality, our Chablis selection in this sale can’t be beat. The 2006 Domaine Costal Chablis “Les Truffières” is an excellent example of Chardonnay grown in the typical kimmeridgian clay/marine fossil soil of the appellation. The name “Truffières” comes from an essence of truffles that you can find on the nose despite the fact that there are no actual truffles in Chablis. Vinified in no wood whatsoever, this Chablis smells incredibly fresh and fragrant, with a crisp, lingering finish. Delicious by itself, the Costal Chablis would pair very nicely with any cut of fresh fish." -- Kermit Lynch website
2007 Domaine de la Cadette La Chatelaine Bourgogne Vezelay...$12.99
Best price on Wine-Searcher - $19.99 at Houston Wine Merchant
"Montanet’s 2007 Bourgogne Vezelay La Chatelaine – the latest installment of what has become a consistently excellent value in white Burgundy – emphasizes the saline, chalky, lemony aspects of its vintage and terroir, but intriguing suggestions of herbed chicken stock and shrimp shell reduction emerge, especially as one matches this with a wide range of cuisine. There have been richer and more concentrated vintages of this wine, but the clarity and sheer lip-smacking refreshment of this 2007 are hard to beat for the price, and should remain accessible for at least 2-3 years. Readers are encouraged to consult my reports in issues 178 and 179 on the inspiring progress of Jean Montanet’s Domaine de la Cadette in the historically important and now much-revived growing area centered around Vezelay, southeast of Chablis."

2006 Perrusset Macon Villages.....$6.99
Lowest price on Wine Searcher -- $12.50
"($17) Yellow-gold. Ripe peach and nectarine aromas betray a touch of warmth. Fleshy pit fruit flavors are brightened by citrus zest, picking up dusty minerals on the close. Offers pleasant, straightforward appeal and surprising depth for the category. 88 points"
