Best Chardonnay Wine

This popular and versatile grape thrives in many different climates so the wine is produced in many parts of the world.

The wine can be soft and subtle or rich, buttery and full-bodied. In warmer regions, aromas can include ripe pears, melon and pineapple. It adapts well to oak, which adds scents of vanilla, butter, cedar, smoke and spice. However, the wine is sometimes criticized for having too much oak and alcohol.

In cooler regions, and especially with unoaked styles, the wine is more lean and acidic and offers notes of green apples, lemon and lime. In Burgundy, chardonnay makes some of the world's finest whites, referred to by their regions, such as Meursault, Chablis and Pouilly-Fuissé.

My reviews of these Chardonnay white wines are updated weekly. These Chardonnay white wines offer great taste at a good price. You'll find a definition of Chardonnay wine at the bottom of this page as well as food pairings for Chardonnay in my wine matcher. This is just a small set of my reviews, but you can get all of them when you join my wine community.
