William's's Bio

 

Buyer of: California Chardonnay

For twenty years, William has played a role in the food and wine industry. A Boston native with extensive experience in fine dining, he came to New York with his chef/wife Lisa in 2004 eager to explore the offerings of New York City and its world-class culinary pedigree. Since then, he immersed himself in Italian wines, running Vino Italian Wine and Spirits, one of the cityís most respected boutique wine shops and became the Wine and Beverage Director of iTrulli Restaurant. With an Advanced Certificate (WSET) from the International Wine Center, William continues to constantly explore the marriage of wine and food with his wife as they travel and entertain friends and family, and participate in the occasional underground supper-club.

William's Wine Selection - Le P'tit Paysan Chardonnay Jacks Hill 2014


The Story

I love the approach that owner and winemaker Ian Brand takes to making his wines. He does not think of actually making wines as much as finding the great spots for the grapes to make themselves. The 2014 Chardonnay is sourced from La Belle Rose Vineyard, abutting Jacks Hill in eastern Salinas Valley.

Tasting Note

The 2014 Chardonnay is sourced from La Belle Rose Vineyard, abutting Jacks Hill in eastern Salinas Valley. It is here that the granite and limestone pierce through the fruit and coupled with the cool climate give the wine a chalky zip on the tongue. I will be enjoying this wine all summer long.

Food Pairing

I would enjoy this with a number of lighter dishes. Sliced heirloom tomato and blood orange salad or seafood dumplings with soy and scallion would compliment wonderfully.
