Result of a cross between Pinot noir and Gouais blanc (Heunisch), Chardonnay is the most popular white wine on earth and recently it has also become the most divisive. Travel to any wine region in the world and you’ll find at least one vineyard growing Chardonnay. It’s a wine that can be simple or regal, aged for many years or consumed immediately.
A green-skinned grape originated in the wine region of Burgundy, France. Pretty neutral, the flavors commonly associated to it are in fact derived from the terroir and oak. In Chablis we find lean and crisply mineral chardonnays, while in the New World they tend to be oaky and tropical fruit flavored.
Besides white wines, chardonnay is also a vital component of many sparkling wines, including Italy’s Franciacorta and France’s Champagne.
Its popularity rose in the late 1980s, leading a process of globalization of wine. Because of it’s relative ease of cultivation and adaptability to different conditions chardonnay is today the second most planted white grape variety, second to the Spanish Airen grape.
