Learn About Chardonnay

Chardonnay is a highly adaptable variety that is grown in every country where vines are cultivated, so well known and enjoyed that it hardly merits further mention. It does well in chalky soils and cooler climates (Champagne and England’s South Downs for example) but is extremely tolerant of other terrains and warmer conditions. View our range.

It is the main white grape variety, by a huge margin, used in Burgundy, responsible for some of the most famous white wines in the world, including Chablis and Meursault, and many excellent lesser ones. Great example are also to be found in other regions such as Australia, where they tend to be oaky. Chardonnay often benefits from oak aging and is capable of maturing well in bottle. Has generous fruit flavours and good balancing acidity.
