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.

  • Beringer Moscato 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet, delicious stand-alone wine that has all the benefits of Chardonnay without dryness. It is the only Moscato I've had so far that did not have a hint of bitterness or muskiness which is oft found with this grape variety.

  • I am looking for the "old style" Chardonnay. The kind most people don't like these days. Big, bold with creamy oaky long finish. Is there such a thing anymore? I really don't like stainless steel Chardonnay.
