The Aug 4, 2018 LCBO Vintages Release is padded with 90+ scoring wines under $25. There are a number of high scoring good value Chardonnays, including a Burgundian Chardonnay hailing from very close to Pouilly- Fuissé and one from Leaning Post Wines who just were awarded a Platinum medal for one of their Chardonnays by the National Wine Awards of Canada.
