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.

    Rude Wines have loads of lovely stuff - the trouble is the Cottonworth Sparkling Rose from Hampshire is so delicious they have to prise the bottle from my hands to force me to try other stuff!Oz Clarke, The Three Wine Men

    Wow - very fruity! Incredible strawberry and cherry fruit, the like of which I’ve never tasted - still less in an English wine! This is thanks to the use of Pinot Précoce, apparently. So bright and ripe. Hard to say if it’s typically English, but I do love its boldness. 17/20 Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com Read More.
