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.

  • Qupe Chardonnay Y Block Santa Barbara County 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Old world in style, shy on the nose, nice acidity with a tannin free finish. Reminds me of Macon Villages and at the same price point. On the second day this wine developed a more fruit forward nose and a tropical palate as well as a little butter. Nice wine, I recommend it. Read More

  • RC - The Cono Sur Chardonnay was decent.  That was Sandra's glass, so I only had a taste from her flight.  I do recommend it, assuming the price is under $30 per bottle.EM - A 2010 Reserva from Ribera Del Duero?  That is one I would expect to be quite good.  I guess the tanic nature comes from the Cabernet Sauvignon blended in there with the Tem...

  • J. Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is an amazing chard for the price, or any price. It is rich but light, balanced acidity, beautiful complex oak, a great glass to drink for sheer pleasure or to pair with almost any food. It is strong enough to stand up to rich red meat, and balanced enough to make a delicate grilled orata come to life. Reliable every year, Lohr is a bargain... Read More
