Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grape varieties; originally from France’s Burgundy region, today it is planted almost anywhere that wine is produced. Chardonnay has a relatively neutral flavour profile, which allows winemakers to use a variety of skills and techniques to create a wide range of styles from taut and linear to rich and buttery.
The village of Chablis in Burgundy is a mecca for Chardonnay lovers. Emulated the world over, Chablis is rarely bettered for its tension and minerality. This is a great example, balancing some fullness on the palate with taut acidity. Will sing with freshly shucked oysters.
