KNOW YOUR ABC
Starting in the Burgundy's Satellite region of Chablis; Domaine Fevre 2018, showing all the flinty, kimmeridgian minerality you'd expect, this is the most racy, steely version of Chardonnay. From Burgundy proper; Philippe Milan Rully Blanc 2020 from the Cote Chalonnaise matches racy acidity and rich Chardonnic (not a word) beauty - one of the best value Burgs on the market. La Souer Cadette Blanc is from the Macon, south of Burgundy - this is a seriously stylish number.
Sandhi Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay is a modern US example closer to Burgundy, made by one of the most talked abourt modern winemakers in the world Rajat Parr.
Finishing in Australia with an old and a new from a neo-classic behemoth, Giant Steps Applejack Vineyard Chardonnay, made by Gourmet Traveller wine maker of the year Steve Flamsteed shows the prowess of Aussie Chardonnay - pound for pound the best in the world in our opinion. Giant Steps Arthur's Vineyard 2012, this is FULLY mature and shows what Chardonnay does when it ages - a piece of history.
Incredible Chardonnay all round. STSWine
