More about Half Bottles of Chardonnay

Chardonnay must be one of the most widely planted grape varietals primarily because it is easy to grow almost anywhere and people love it (or did, before the ABC (anything but chardonnay) movement gained traction in reaction to overoaked wines primarily from Australia and the USA). Thankfully, for our tastes, the quality end of the winemakers have become a lot more constrained in their use of new oak.

Chardonnay brings an impressive range of flavors from the expected buttered, oak influences to the fresh, fruit flavors of apple, pear, tropical, citrus and melon, leaving a lasting palate impression.

It was the quality of white Burgundy from Chablis and the Montrachets, Puligny and Chassagne, that made chardonnay famous and created huge demand worldwide. The top wines in these areas demand prices well in excess of £500 per bottle.

Chardonnay's many styles are achieved by different wine making processes; sparkling wine, for example, Blanc de Blanc Champagne; cool fermentation to preserve fruit, for example, Chablis; oak barrel fermentation including malolactic fermentation and lees stirring in the finest Burgundies; making sweet wines.
