Darlene Myers Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Chardonnay 2007

Why This Wine: I chose Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos Chardonnay 2007 because it stands out as one of my favourites with chicken. While I like chicken with both red or white, Chardonnay has take the lead, and this one in particular because it's rich and elegant and smooth. A fine Canadian wine.

Valerie Stride Gray Monk Estate Winery Ehrenfelser 2011

Why This Wine: This wine's vibrant acidity creates a good backbone for its layers of fruit. Crisp apple, freshly squeezed lemon & lime, grapefruit and Bosc pear all play in your glass. I'd serve this wine with Chicken Piccata placed over a lightly tossed & seasoned angel hair pasta. Pardon my drooling.

Joe Casa-Dea Estates Winery Reserve Pinot Gris 2009

Why This Wine: This wine has fresh spring flowers and citrus notes on the nose. It's lively with crisp mouth-watering acidity, with a dry, light body. This would pair beautifully with roasted chicken as the herbal components of the chicken would balance the acidity of the wine to make an awesome match!

Adam Blomidon Estate Winery Blomidon, Chardonnay, Reserve 2009

Why This Wine: I first had it with a 4-course lobster dinner on a patio, but this wine can go surf or turf. Its green apple and citrus notes, combined with some smoky, nutty butterscotch from barrel aging, pairs perfectly with a Chicken Ballotine, chestnut stuffed free range with a truffle risotto, and sunchoke cream sauce.

Barbara Cidrerie St-Nicolas Pom’Or Tradition Cider 2001

Why This Wine: Wonderfully effervescent with a subtle hint of natural sweetness, burst of fresh apples layered with pear, good mouth-feel and a crisp clean finish. I would have this for a light lunch with a curried chicken, toasted pecan & apple salad with crusty bread of course!
