– Hello. Hey,
how are you?
– Hi, good. So,
I’m a personal finance writer,
so I’m always worried about price point
when I’m drinking wine or doing pretty much anything.
And I like white wine, so I’m wondering
what to look for in an inexpensive white wine.
– What do you usually like out of your white wine?
– I usually just go with chardonnay,
but I’m not wedded to it.
– Is there anything in particular that you enjoy,
like sensationally, when you’re drinking
chardonnay that makes you lean towards that a little bit?
Bigger and fuller style of chardonnay,
or something with a little bit more like light and refreshing?
– Yeah, I would say bigger,
because with other white wines I usually feel like I can’t really taste it.
– Okay, cool. So,
you want something that’s a little bolder.
Has a little bit more full flavor to it.
Two really good options for you. So,
this is a white wine from the Savoie in France. So,
the area has tons of sunlight.
There’s a lot of mineral-rich soils there. So,
you are going to get this really refreshing quality to the wine.
– So, minerality is good.
– Well, for some people. Minerality,
can just mean that you’re gonna get
a little bit of freshness,
even though it’s not gon na be very high in acidity.
– So, that’s gon na give a little more body,
but still have it be refreshing. So,
it’s not chardonnay, but the grape
is called Jacquere, and it does have a
little bit more fruit to it. So,
it’s gonna have a little bit more
of a kind of rounded fruit quality,
but it’s still gon na be nice and refreshing. So,
you’re gon na get a wine that
has a little more body, but still has
a really refreshing edge to it.
Everyone always thinks that it looks a little bit more expensive than $ 12.
Just’cause it looks like a fancy bottle.
That’s why it’s a great bottle to bring to a party.
– Well, there you go.
– And then, with this guy this is a really cool
white wine from Portugal. So,
a lot of times with chardonnay what people
like from that richer style chardonnay is that
it has this nice creaminess or butteriness.
And this will have that same kind of oiliness on the palette.
所以 如果有人进来买酒 他们会说
– So, if someone comes in and they just say
I just want something inexpensive, is there a judgment there ever or…?
– No, never.
There’s a reason we have the wine.
If we didn’t think that there was good, inexpensive wine
we wouldn’t carry it.
We have to curate a little bit higher
at that price point
to find stuff that’s good quality for us,
but this is a killer wine.
And it doesn’t look like it’s $12.
If you brought that to a party,
people would definitely have thought you spent a little bit more.
– Yeah, they’d be impressed.
– [Jake] Yeah, it’s a great wine.
