Chardonnay White Wine

One of the most famous wines you can buy is Chardonnay. But what do you really know about this wine? For starters, did you know that the original grape comes from burgundy in France? Chardonnay is used in Chablis wine. It is said to contribute to the fresh and steely flavour of the wine. But it also used in many other wines throughout France. This includes those found in the Cte de Beaune and the appellation of Chassagne-Montrachet. Chardonnay is also used in some wines produced in the south of France. These are perhaps not as well known as their northern counterparts. However, wines from the Cte Chalonnaise are still highly desired for their creamy and nutty taste.

The most common white grapes are Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio and Riesling. The most common red grapes are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Grenache.
