Taste Chardonnay’s Three Best Styles On Its Day
So while Chardonnay may have French provenance, tracing its origins to Burgundy and also dominating the iconic Champagne sparkling wine blend along with Pinot Noir, this grape owns the world, conquering vineyards and winning palates on every continent! Chardonnay has the potential to make vigorously fruit forward wines as well as barrel aged, creamy styles. Chardonnay is still most at home in the French region of Burgundy, turning out wines of great balance and the rare capacity to barrel age beautifully.
Gifted with its special ability to adapt to almost any terroir, Chardonnay has rooted itself across the new world, crafting a number of different styles ranging from bone dry to vigorously fruity to oak matured opulence. And on Chardonnay’s day in the sun, we’re opening three exciting styles of Chardonnay, spanning old world charm and new world exuberance. Get intimately acquainted with Chardonnay through an immersive tasting three distinct wines from fascinating regions spanning the cool yet sunny Marlborough in New Zealand, the vast and warm Central Valley that is Chile’s beating heart of wine and Italy’ uniquely volcanic vineyard parcels in Mount Etna.
