Chardonnay

Chardonnay

There is hardly a region in the world where Chardonnay is not planted. In the 1990s, Chardonnay almost became a brand in its own right, with New World producers actively marketing their wines under the grape name.

In the past winemakers have tried to emulate the great whites from Burgundy and Chablis, and have been criticised for not forging their own style. They now produce Chardonnay in their own ways, aligning production more closely to their locality.

Key Countries and Regions

Primarily France (Burgundy, Chablis, Meursault, Montrachet, Pouilly Fuissé and Champagne); some particularly good Chardonnay is being produced in South Africa, New Zealand, California, Australia and Chile, where the flavour is more potent.

Climate Suitability

Chardonnay is regarded as the perfect grape variety -- it is easy to grow in most climates and also makes good-quality wine.

Colour and Flavours

Chardonnay is a white wine, and is slightly sweet to taste. The wines have a distinct elegance supported by an intense and well-balanced range of aromas.

Synonyms

Aubaine (an old Burgundian synonym no longer used); Beaunois (a rare Burgundian synonym) and Pinot Chardonnay (old).
