Chardonnay is the most versatile and widely-grown white wine grape, producing full-bodied wines in varying styles. Most notably grown in Burgundy and California, many examples from South America to New Zealand. Pinning down one single style of Chardonnay can be difficult since most of its character comes from the winemaking techniques. Lees aging imparts biscuity flavors, while barrel maturing yields vanilla and spice. French Chardonnay have subtle flavors of citrus and minerality with undertones of truffle and hazelnut. Cool climates such as Chablis and Germany produce lean examples of Chardonnay with bright minerality and green apple aromas. In contrast to warmer regions such as California and Chile, Chardonnay leans to more tropical fruits such as peach and pineapple.
