Chardonnay grape variety

Chardonnay is the king white grape of Burgundy and Champagne. Genetic analyzes have shown that it is the result of a cross between gouais (one of the oldest grape variety giving wines of poor quality, without bouquet which explains its - almost - total disappearance of the vineyard) and pinot blanc. Chardonnay gives wines of great finesse, well balanced, powerful, ample with a strong aromatic potential. It is also well suited for fermentation and ageing in barrels.
