Buttery white??

Posted by Wineloverstephanie, Jun 3, 2011.

Hey everyone....does anyone know of or have a favorite white that is really buttery?  I bought a bottle a couple of months ago and can not for the life of me remember the winery or even where I bought it...(must have been a good night)  Anyway, looking for something around or below $20 that is smooth, lots of vanilla and loads of butter????  Any suggestions?

Try a decent Napa or Sonoma of about 2 years age from harvest from a producer such as Rodney Strong or J. Lohr.  That should make the butter drip and not hurt the wallet overly much...

You're looking for a larger, New World style chard with lots of oak, most likely malolactic fermentation. La Crema is one I find that is not too over-the-top for that style.

La Crema would also work exceedingly well.

Let's not forget Kendall Jackson. The creamery of Sonoma!

Yeah, but I can drink La Crema. Can't seem to do that with KJ these days....  ;-)

^^ha that was funny outhere!  I actually don't remember Kendall jackson being that creamy, but it has been a long time since I tired..will pick some up at the store next time I am there.  I think I have tried La Crema and did not love it, but maybe I am thinking of something else.  I did buy a bottle of Cupcake not too long ago and was kinda disapointed that it wasent more..."cupcakey".  And seriously, this girl loves cupcakes!  If I could find a wine that really tasted like a vinalla cupcake, I would be in big trouble.  I also like trouble!

La Crema is probably your best bet, as I find both qualities you mention in that wine.

This week I have been drinking a Pierre Chanau Tastevinage Bourgogne Chardonnay,a really nice white Burgundy which I reckon you could describe as buttery

Rombauer, hands down.  butter bomb all the way.  La Crema will work too, but I bet you will enjoy the rombauer even more.

Try Laguna which is a really well done wine from the Gallo Family. A lot of people tend to forget about just how good the Gallo Wines really are. I am the Food and Beverage Director for a Private Club in North Carolina and I regularly put on 5 and 6 course gourmet wine dinners for our membership. These dinners have become such a big event that I have clubs throughout our region calling me to see what our secret is. It is simple! I have created very strong relationships with all of my wine reps who regularly bring the actual winemakers to visit with me and my chef (who tastes with me every week). These winemakers wheel and deal to get a spot on our calender for a wine dinner. We are currently planning a 6 course dinner using Gallo wines from all over the world. Anyway, try the Laguna. It will definately be a pleaser.

I agree with NG.  You can't beat Rombauer for that over-the-top creamy, buttery, oaky thang.  It's definitely not my bag, but it sells...and sells.

EDIT: It's over $20, though.  Probably $30ish retail.

OK so over half of these I have never even heard of...but I am making a list and I can't wait to try every single one!! 

I tried the Kenal Jackson again last night and I did love it.  It had a little bit of tateness to it though, but it did have a lot of the creme qualities that I was seeking though. 

I looked for it today at the store, but could not find it :( 

Thanks everyone for the input!
