Considered the queen of white grapes, Chardonnay is the main French white variety grown mainly in the areas of Burgundy, Chablis and Champagne. It produces deep delicate white wines of remarkable persistence. Its particular trait is its pale yellow color with green lights. Its aroma is reminiscent of fresh fruit, such as apples, or flowers. Because of its balanced flavor, some people assert Chardonnay has consolidated the introduction of women in the wine world.
In Argentina, it is used as the base for most sparkling wines. It is mostly developed in the lands of San Rafael, Tupungato and Maipú, in the Province of Mendoza, and in Alto Valle del Río Negro.
