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 »

  • Clotilde Davenne Chablis Grand Cru les Preuses 2010

    Wine review by martins2002

  • J Vineyards Brut Rose Russian River Valley NV


    Warm cherry and strawberry aromas, smooth and balanced with floral notes. Zesty and tart citrus notes on the palate with tangerine, lemon and grapefruit notes with fresh strawberries and cream, very warm with baking spices and bold acidity with a bit of earthiness coming through towards the finish, framed with cherry and a faint tannin layering ...

  • Moniker Chardonnay Mendocino County 2015


    Vanishing oak and spiced green apple aromas, a touch floral with a note of oat straw. Cool, breezy notes of peach and green apple on the palate, a pleasant acidity and creamy texture finishing with mixed spice, a bit of tart melon and potpourri. Read More

  • Retailers report, and empirical evidence demonstrates, that Valentine's Day ... (under 10%) complement of chardonnay grapes. The floral and fruity nose invites you in, but the creamy mouthfeel is decadent and the flavor palette offers ripe pear with fresh apple, secondary notes of crème brûlée and freshly baked bread. For the last ten years, th... Read More

  • Villa Maria has a really unoaked Chardonnay. Has a butterscotch vanilla finish. I'd love to know if anyone has tried other Villa Maria Chardonnays. I'd hate to buy a wine that didn't meet expectations. I've done enough of that already.

  • I like un-oaked Chard and find Toad Hollow to be one of the best for the $$$. 2008 is very good and now sports a screw cap.

  • One of the consistently great Califonia Chardonnays over the last almost three decades has been Navarro's Premier Reserve. This wine can still be had for about 20 dollars and since it's inception has been Burgundian in style with Navarro's "deep-end" touch.
