Chardonnay Wine

The now ubiquitous Chardonnay takes its name from a French village to the south of Burgundy, where it is thought the grape was first cultivated. It is now grown throughout the world, and is a relatively easy variety to grow, which no doubt contributes to its widespread cultivation.

The most malleable of grapes, Chardonnay adapts remarkably well to different climates and winemaking styles, producing everything from bone dry Champagne to rich, juicy New World styles. Warm climate Chardonnays, such as those from California, Australia or South Africa, tend to have tropical fruit flavours – pineapple or mango say - but cool climate grapes from regions such as Burgundy or Champagne produce a much crisper taste: think green apple or citrus. Oak ageing lends creamy, buttery or vanilla notes – and it’s this chameleon-like character that makes Chardonnay the success it is today.

    If your idea of heaven is a grapefruit exploding into your face buy this wine.Olly Smith, The Three Wine Men

    Meet our very own contender for best value French white wine. You'll probably already know that Gascony, in South-West France, is high on the list for great wines, especially whites and rosés that won't cost the earth. That's why we headed there to put together our own 'house' white, and it's a real stunner.
