Artisan Cheeses By Wine Type: Chardonnay

The Chardonnay grape is thought to have originated in Lebanon, and in France Chardonnay became the only grape allowed to be grown in Chablis, Burgundy. These white Bungundy wines were well enjoyed, and the grape is also used in sparkling wines and Champagne.

Chardonnay really hit its prime when it was grown in California, however. Its popularity has grown immensely in the past fourty years, to where it is now the most popular white wine available. Winemakers love Chardonnay because the vines are easy to grow, and have a high yield. Wine drinkers love Chardonnay because of the wide variety of flavours it can take on.

Depending on where it's grown and how it's fermented, Chardonnay can taste semi-sweet or sour, heady or light. Typical flavors are apple, tangerine, lemon, lime, melon, and oak. Also, Chardonnay is not a "rich man's drink". A surprisingly good chardonnay can cost under $10.

Chardonnay is usually dry, and goes best with poultry or seafood, like lobster or scallops. It can also perfectly accent a light red meat dish. Recommended cheeses include Gruyere, Provolone and Brie.

In addition to California and Burgundy, Chardonnays are also grown in quantity in Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. Cool-climate Chardonnays get longer growing times, and end up with subtle overtones. Warm-climate Chardonnays, on the other hand, become more flavorful and full tasting.

Chardonnay should be served at 48F. Most chardonnays are meant to be drunk immediately, but some can age for 5-10 years or more.

BelGioioso Italico Cheese gets its creamy texture and earthy flavor from its careful blending and curing process. Made from fresh milk sourced from local farms, BelGioioso Italico cheese is made in small batches to capture the fullest flavor in each wedge. While it is aged for 90 days, the pink rind develops from hand washing with salt and water. The rind keeps the cheese fresh and holds the earthy flavor in until it is ready for use. BelGioioso Italico Cheese melts evenly into a velvety spread, or you can cut off slices of this soft cheese to add unique flavor and zing to sandwiches, paninis, pizzas, salads and more.
