Chardonnay is the world’s favorite white wine and the most reviled at the same time. Yes, we love our Chardonnay, but we don’t love your Chardonnay, so there!
One of Chardonnay’s biggest assets is also its biggest liability, it comes in all flavors and styles. It’s tough to recommend a specific style of Chardonnay, but I have to say that I’ve been drinking more Chardonnay lately as I’ve been able to identify the styles I like. Want to experiment with super Chardonnay on a budget? Check out the range of wines coming from Italy. Seriously, it’s planted all over the place and it’s relatively difficult to sell, so values abound!
