Tell me about it. I rarely pay more than $30 for a bottle and only rarely, at that.
Right now, however, I am drinking a quite quaffable Chardonnay (Cambria 2004, Katherine's Vineyard, Santa Maria Valley) and preparing to grill some chicken. Things could definitely be worse than that!
Never been a big Chardonnay fan. I don't like what oak aging does to a white. If that makes me a pirahna in wine circles, so be it. I tend more to Rieslings, Gewurtztraminers, and Liebfraumilchs. FWIW, Wine Spectator raved about the 2005 German Rieslings. They are reasonably priced, too.
