Did you know that Chardonnay is America’s most popular wine — red or white — and the world’s most widely planted white wine grape?

I didn’t.

Tracy Byrnes Headshot

I’m Tracy Byrnes, Fox Business anchor and Wine With Me columnist, and we are going to dive into the prevalent green (yes, green!) grape today.

Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, our personal Jedi master of wine – @jediwinemaster and who happens to also be a legitimate Master of Wine – is back with us to answer a ton of questions about your glass of Chardonnay.

Like…what’s the difference between oaked and unoaked Chardonnay? And what makes it so buttery?

Jen brought four wines:

  • One Rock 2013
  • Domaine Faiveley 2011
  • Louis Jadot Meursault 2011
  • Calera 2012

But really what you need is:

  • A Chardonnay that was not aged in oak
  • A white Burgundy also not aged in oak
  • A white Burgundy aged in oak
  • And a California Chardonnay also aged in oak

So pour some wine, listen along and let’s figure out what you like best…and why this wine is so darn popular!

Cent’ Anni.
