Chardonnay is America’s favorite wine, and it’s No. 1 in Washington, one of the state’s “big four” wine varieties.

In the Old World, Chardonnay is best known in Burgundy, where it is the white wine of choice. In Chablis, a region of Burgundy, Chardonnay becomes a different style of wine with less of the oak and butter notes we’ve come to expect and more of the dramatic flint and citrus notes. In Champagne, Chardonnay is one of the primary grapes used to make sparkling wine (along with Pinot Noir).
