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 »

Italy is well known for many things and one of them is an inordinate number of different wine grapes. The variety (400-500) is practically dizzying. That sort of diversity is also present in Italian sparkling wine where a number of traditions persist. ...Read more »

fabulous nose of butter, avocado and citrus; still a bit sharp and mineraly on palate, wish it had more oak though...
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon » Languedoc » Limoux » Crémant de Limoux|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Chenin Blanc , Pinot Noir|
Purchased at Binny's, 12/2016. Yippee. Beautiful in the glass, tiny bubbles, a hint of a nutty taste in the mouth with a dry finish. Best of the show in a small two bottle tasting.
|Winery:||Maison Louis Jadot|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Mâconnais » Pouilly-fuissé|
The reliable Louis Jadot negotiant (wholesaler) makes a wonderful generic Pouilly-Fuisse with a garden flower scent (white Wisteria) and a slightly oaky, oily licorice flavour on the palate. Finish is long and satisfying. A fine wine for the price and...
|Region:||USA » California » Mendocino County » Anderson Valley|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Pinot Noir|
Wonderful as usual. Apples, nuttiness, a slight touch of cherry with a cripness and acidity that give this an excellent finish. 91 points - drink now - Paul.
|Winery:||Terlato Family Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Russian River Valley|
oaky sweetness mixed with lemon and minerals. great wine!
|Region:||Australia » Western Australia » Pemberton|
nose of morning dew, melon and rosemary; savoury with slight pepper spices
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Grenache Blanc , Marsanne|
This wine - apparently produced by a favourite Roussillon house of Parker - does make for a wonderful, affordable wine. It has a nose of those over-perfumed kind of flowers like Wisteria or Clematis - perhaps Honeysuckle - but this is inviting (even p...

|Winery:||Jean Claude Mas|
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon » Languedoc » Limoux|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Chenin Blanc|
Nice easy drinking way to begin a lunch. A bit bracing with cherry, strawberry, and cotton candy. A bargain at the pricing of $15
|Winery:||Ferrari-Carano Winery Heldsburg|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County|
More in the classic California buttery style of chardonnay...which I greatly miss. This ABC movement can go to H__l! Oaky, with vanillin, apple and a buttery acidic finish that lingers well. Was great with crab legs and a macaroni salad. Drink now ...

Elegant, fruity aromas of glazed pear, fresh apple and vanilla cream on the nose. This exhibits a truly fresh palate of lively stone fruit, pierced with zesty acidity and a pile of spice - and wrapped in a creamy layer of vanilla bean, rolled oats and brioche. Read More
Light floral aromas of orange blossom, green apple and pear with pungent spice and a hint of lemon. Expressive palate of Meyer lemon, grapefruit and apple with creamy pastry crust notes and a frolicking texture. There's a touch of tart citrus pith on the finish adding a bit of complexity to this agreeable crowd pleaser. Read More
Heady savory lemon, toasted hazelnut and fresh yeast aromas are very aromatic here. Theres a bit of cream on the palate which shifts towards lemon and grapefruit notes, more dark toast and smoky brioche, leading straight into a lighter note of peach and apple, finishing with vanilla, cream and some melon. Good complexity. Read More

For years I have been buying your 5 L boxes of Chardonay and Cabernet at Washington DC stores when they are on sale. For the past six months; no sales. When I called to ask why? "Franzia has raised prices too much to have any more sles of the box wines."

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.
