About Chardonnay

Chardonnay is arguably the best and most widely planted white wine grape in the world, with bottlings from Old and New World readily available throughout the globe. It is the signature white grape of Burgundy where it produces a variety of styles, from minerally, unoaked Chablis to decadent, full and toasty wines of Montrachet and Pouilly-Fuissé. It is also the main white grape used in Champagne, and the sole grape used in Blanc de Blancs. It is also common in California, where it is often oak aged.
