Chardonnay wines are dry, to medium-bodied, or even full-bodied. Most Chardonnay wines are meant to be consumed young, usually within 2-3 years of the vintage. Due to the different wine making techniques, Chardonnay has a wide range in bouquets and flavors. The most common bouquets / flavors of Chardonnay wines include apple, pear, peach, apricot, lemon, lime, orange, tangerine, pineapple, banana, mango, guava, kiwi, acacia, and hawthorn. The way the wine is processed / aged also impacts the bouquet and flavor of Chardonnay wines. Chardonnay wines processed / aged in light oak have bouquets / flavors of vanilla, sweet wood, and coconut. Chardonnay wines that are processed / aged in heavy oak have bouquets / flavors of oak, smoke, toast, lees, and yeast. Chardonnay wines that are processed / aged using the malolactic fermentation have bouquets / flavors of butter, cream, and hazelnut. Chardonnay wines are also impacted by the soil it is grown in exhibiting bouquets / flavors of flint, mineral, and mint.
