If ever there was a wine that was eager to make a good first impression, it’s this rich, creamy, yet vibrant Chardonnay. This full-bodied white offers exhilarating aromas of tropical fruit, followed by lemon curd and toasted nut flavors on the palate. It's delightful on its own, but would also be lovely paired with butter-poached fish or roast chicken. Sometimes first impressions are the most lasting for good reason.

Pinot Blanc is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, but it tastes nothing like Pinot Grigio, which is also a mutation. Pinot Blanc is mostly grown in Alsace, where it's also used to make a sparkling wine called Cremant d'Alsace.
