British wine writer and critic, Jancis Robinson, once noted that throughout the 80’s and 90’s in the United States, Chardonnay took its varietal qualities to the next level and ‘virtually became a brand.’

Delicate. Malleable. Neutral. Reflecting on its terroir and its winemakers’ preferences, Chardonnay gained fame from its widespread success in the Burgundy and Champagne regions of France. If a painter stares at his blank white canvas with a thousand possibilities of expressing himself to society, winemakers do no differently with Chardonnay. This varietal holds the rare quality of having its flavors mold to the many differences in Read more »

Chardonnay on Snooth

  • Chaberton Estate Winery Barrel Aged Chardonnay 2017


    The Chaberton Barrel Aged Chardonnay is well priced, and has a purity on the palate and nose that invites all-comers; there is a vanilla spice and muted apple nose coupled with a pure spring water feel to the lightly oaked, somewhat neutral entry. Finish is clean with short to medium length. Good value for summer drinking on the patio. 87. Read More

  • I left out a half-full bottle of red wine on the kitchen counter overnight. It ... line includes Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and more. A to Z’s interpretation of Oregon’s signature varietal, Pinot Noir, interests me most. I think of it as Oregon’s “gateway Pinot Noir”. A to Z wines are $20 or less. Once you get hooked on an accessibly pri... Read More

  • Columbia Winery Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2016


    White peach and blossom with tangerine zest notes and fresh herb adding another dimension. This is soft, juicy and dry on the palate showing good cool fruit notes of peach, pear and apple with a tart crisp mid palate with some melon and lemon coming through on the zesty toasted finish. Refreshing and light. Read More

  • Rivers-Marie Chardonnay Bearwallow Vineyard 2016


    Probably, a higher acid Chardonnay than most people like, but I'm enjoying it. I do get oaky vanilly, but, not question, there is very noticeable lemon pith or, maybe, tart green apple. I might criticize that the wine does not seem to evolve as it moves back. It is what it is. As I said, I like it, but I can see why it might not appeal to all. Read More
