A similarly richly textured and opulent grape variety such as Semillon or Chenin Blanc. Top tip: South African Chenin Blanc has similar rich and creamy characteristics to white Burgundy, but offers fantastic value for money. Chardonnay is sometimes seen as the variety that everyone loves to hate (think Marmite). Back in the 1990s there were those who declared, "Anything but Chardonnay" (the ABC club). But these same wine lovers would happily crack open a bottle of Chablis or White Burgundy, both of which use 100% Chardonnay. Whether you love rich, opulent oaked or elegant unoaked Chardonnay, we have a thrilling alternative for you.
