British wine writer and critic, Jancis Robinson, once noted that throughout the 80’s and 90’s in the United States, Chardonnay took its varietal qualities to the next level and ‘virtually became a brand.’

Delicate. Malleable. Neutral. Reflecting on its terroir and its winemakers’ preferences, Chardonnay gained fame from its widespread success in the Burgundy and Champagne regions of France. If a painter stares at his blank white canvas with a thousand possibilities of expressing himself to society, winemakers do no differently with Chardonnay.

  • One of my goals for 2019 was to read more of wine books. It's a resolution ... familiar with Cabernet and Chardonnay, but they were chosen because of their ability to resist tropical vine diseases and thrive in the warm, moist climate. Sababay Winery opened its doors (overlooking Saba Bay) in 2012, its website going live at 7 am on July 7th of... Read More

  • Domaine Drouhin Oregon Arthur 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Somewhat more spring water on the palate, with cake spice and vanilla - with a bit thinner backbone than the 2016 at this point (April 2019), but alive; with a sweet sugary vanilla nose, and spiritus flavour dominating entry. A fine wine - if you want spice, spring water purity. 91. Read More

  • Concha Y Toro Marques de Casa Concha Chardonnay 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Here is a modest - but always pleasing - Marques Casa Concha Chardonnay (Limari Valley - a well-known growing area for whites in Chile). With a bouquet of spicy apple and light oak, this three year old wine is turning a light golden colour, having been aged in French Oak and allowed to sit for a year extra. The entry is quite spicy - with oak an... Read More

  • I think that's true. There's a lot of new money getting into the wine ... wine ... by grape variety - Chardonnay, Sauv Blanc, Merlot, Pinot Noir, etc., and then there will be a shelf labeled "imported wine" and it will have a mix of bottles from Chile, Argentina, Italy, France, Germany, etc.&nbs Read More
