J Christopher Chehalem Mountain Chardonnay 06

Avalon's Wine Pick of the Week for 1-31-08

"Sweet Revenge: How J. Christopher Chardonnay saved my New Year's Resolution"

It's true, I ate two double chocolate rolo filled cupcakes and a piece of chocolate cream pie for dinner on Sunday night. In my defense, my niece Chloe turned three and demanded a princess themed birthday party which left me covered in sparkles, glitter, and pink sprinkles. Needless to say, with each chocolate filled bite I saw my New Year's resolution of healthy eating going down the tubes.

Oddly enough, it was a bottle of wine that got me back on my diet track.

The J. Christopher Chardonnay Chehalem Mountain Vineyard 06 $19.45/$17.50 is the perfect glass of wine with a dinner salad made with sliced fennel, avocado, grilled chicken and mixed baby greens.

Full of sweet lychee, white peach and preserved lemon zest it is a complex and refreshing. Made with no oak and no malolactic fermentation the J. Christopher Chehalem is pleasantly crisp and bright but surprisingly rich on the palette.

This Chardonnay is a breath of fresh air during the winter months of big, bold reds. Enjoy with a savory winter salad or poached halibut.

Happy drinking and good eating,
