A person orders a glass of white wine in a bar but when offered a Chardonnay as the choice replies with "I'm not drinking that stuff" and asks instead for a glass of chilled Chablis.
What's wrong with that scene?
Apart from the fact that the person has an attitude problem it's pretty obvious to a wine-lover that they clearly know little about wine.
Before I go further I'll explain to those who don't know that Chablis is made from the Chardonnay grape.
I hear people revolting over Chardonnay (or Chard-Oh-Nay!) all the time and to be honest it makes me a bit mad.
Firstly, it's the rude "I'm not drinking that" attitude. As if their rudeness makes them an expert. Take a seat, there's loads of people who really do know a lot about wine and most of them would never speak like that.
And secondly, I get it, you're not a fan of Chardonnay but if you actually tried and tasted some of Chardonnay's many faces you may actually have a pleasant experience and loose the attitude. There's never an excuse to be rude!
So why the rant?
To let you know that all Chardonnay's are not created equally and there should be no need to hear the Chard-Oh-Nay cry ever again.
Bare with me, I'll explain and it might make it easy the next time you're choosing a glass.
