Chardonnay is a highly adaptable variety with generous fruit flavours and a good balancing acidity. Grown in every country where vines are cultivated, it is so well known and enjoyed that it hardly merits further mention. Chardonnay 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. It often benefits from oak aging and is capable of maturing well in bottle.
