ChardonnayAll products from this varietal
Fresh chardonnay shows bright fruity profile and strong body. Chardonnay wines usually have expressed aromatic complexity and usually it happens due to winemaking techniques (particularly the use of oak promote notes of vanilla, smoke and hints of spices) rather than the variety's intrinsic qualities. Also, this variety can develop cream, yeast and brioche bread notes. Because of this high level of winemaker influence, Chardonnay has become famous as the "winemaker's wine".
Despite the fact that Chablis is considered to be a part of the Bourgogne region, it is located quite far in the North. Locals don't consider it to be germane to the region because Chablis is more independent from the general rules, has different laws, climate and soil. Chardonnay is the only grape allowed here. The wines of Chablis are white and dry, with an expressed minerality that is dominated by notes of nuts and citrus. The vineyards of Chablis were once a seabed creating a soil called Kimmeridgian which gives wine the numerous qualities that make it absolutely unique. If you are looking for a true French wine finesse and elegance - Chablis is the way to go.
