Very widespread in France, occupying the 2nd rank of white grape varieties in terms of surface area, it has conquered the whole world with its formidable capacities of adaptation whatever the climate.
Chardonnay is truly the star of white wines around the world. It is sometimes blended with other grape varieties, but it gives its best results as a single variety, as in Burgundy.
Fineness of flavours and liveliness, this grape variety can offer the most prestigious wines. This grape variety has an affinity for oak. There are woody cuvées aged in barrels, while other cuvées that have not been in contact with wood will thrive more on their floral aromas.
It is a wine for laying down and can be aged in oak barrels and for a long time in the bottle. Depending on the terroir and vinification techniques, this variety gives rich and varied aromas, the most characteristic of which are toasted bread, almonds, citrus fruits, butter, honey and, in the best conditions, a mineral touch ranging from wet stone to flint.
Elsewhere in the world, having proved its worth, Chardonnay was for a long time vinified as a single grape variety, to the detriment of the diversification of the cultivation of other grape varieties. This trend was reversed in the 2000s to the delight of connoisseurs eager for bold experiments in viticulture and winemaking.
Wines from around the world, single-variety or not, the pleasure is to have them tasted blind. Because discovering wine by grape variety is an excellent way of approaching soils and climates... especially with Chardonnay, which reveals the terroir, whatever it is, in complete transparency.
