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).
