    Default Charrdonnay Suggestion, Please ?

    Hello,

    Will adnit that I know next to nothing re wines.

    Would like to buy a bottle of Chardonnay as a gift for someone who is very
    knowledgeable about wines.

    Will be willing to spend up to, say, $ 40

    Can anyone please suggest one or two specific brands, etc. that stand a good
    chance of being in our local wine shops (Boston) ?

    Would like it to be a "recognizable" label so it does not appear that it is
    e.g., mistaken as a really cheap $ 10 one.

    Is $ 30 - $40 enough for a "decent" bottle ?

    Thanks,
    D.

    My suggestion is to find a good local store, and ask them the question
    you are asking here. If you get a suggestion here and try to follow
    it, you run the risk that your store won't have it.

    Yes, you should be able to get an excellent bottle for that price.

    My personal favorite in the $40 price range is Shafer Red Shoulders
    Ranch Chardonnay. Shafer is a well recognized brand in the US of high
    quality wines. The chardonnay is non-malo and combines rich ripe
    fruit with a fresh acidity and balance. It's a good food wine but can
    be enjoyed as an apertif and it should be readily available in the
    Boston area.

    For your price range I would look for any Au Bon Climat (Santa
    Barbara) bottling. Very consistant and delicious.
