The choice of the right wine, Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc !

Serving white wine can bring extra charm to your event. Especially if there are good drinkers among the guests. So, before choosing the best option, it is very important that you know the main characteristics of each one.

The most famous white wines in the world are Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, which differ in some ways. Chardonnay, is produced from the white Chardonnay grape, originally from the region of Burgundy, France. The fruit adapts to any climate, presenting excellent production yield, and is also used in the cutting of Champagnes.

Chardonnay white wine is dry, more full-bodied and can present different personalities, depending on the taste of the producer. Flavors like cream, vanilla and butter are the most common. It is also one of the few types of white wine that accept oak aging well.

The Sauvignon Blanc grape, on the other hand, originated in the Bordeaux region, also in France. It has a very different flavor from Chardonnay, thanks to its more herbaceous aromas. It is one of the most planted grapes in the world, which has resulted in a wide variety of styles and flavors.

Sauvignon Blanc wine is lighter and very aromatic. Depending on its origin, you may notice a different aroma. The most common are fresh grass, lemon, gooseberry, sweet fruits and even pepper. An interesting aspect is that some Sauvignon Blanc are aged in oak, which gives them the same creaminess as Chardonnay.

Now that you know the main characteristics of each type, it's time to choose the best option for your particular event ...... A great tip, is that both harmonize very well with options from the sea (fish, shrimp, lobsters) / crayfish, octopus, mussels) accompanied by grilled vegetables, Moroccan couscous, etc. And remember, knowing the profile of your guests is essential for white wine to be very well appreciated by everyone.
