The Grape
Chardonnay - Pinot Gris (Pinot Grigio)
Chardonnay – Pinot Gris is a blend of two of the world`s better-known grape varieties. Chardonnay, the variety associated with white Burgundy, is found in almost every wine-producing country in the world and is most often seen as a varietal wine. Pinot Gris (or Pinot Grigio) is also found in vineyards across the world, but is most famously grown in Alsace, France, and Italy`s Alto Adige region. Together, the two varieties combine to make simple white wines, or more complex sparkling wines.

As the two varieties are quite international, the blend is made in countries around the world, and particularly in Italy, the US and Australia. Chardonnay contributes weight and structure to the blend, while Pinot Gris gives aromatic complexity. There are no widely held conventions regarding proportions of each grape variety, and so this can vary from 50/50 blends to "just a splash" of one to add weight or perfume to the other.

In Italy, the two varieties are permitted in Franciacorta DOCG wines but Pinot Gris is used less frequently in deference to the more-favored Pinot Noir. Chardonnay and Pinot Gris are also found together in both sparkling and still forms under a range of IGT-level denominations.

New World expressions of the Chardonnay and Pinot Gris blend may be dry or off-dry and usually have a deep golden color. The fruit spectrum is dominated by tropical and stonefruit flavors. Peach, nectarine and pineapple notes are all commonly described in these wines. They may show a weighty texture if barrel-aged, but will normally be produced in an early-drinking style.

Along with sparkling and still Chardonnay – Pinot Gris wines, there are a few examples that are made in sweet dessert styles.
