 Chardonnay Rose Wine

Chardonnay Rosé is an extremely rare pink-berried mutation of Chardonnay found, oddly enough, almost exclusively around the village of Chardonnay in southern Burgundy (see Macon Chardonnay).

Another variant of Chardonnay is the floral Chardonnay Blanc Musqué, which is found in Burgundy's Maconnais, Canada’s Niagara Peninsula and New York’s Finger Lakes AVA.

Such skin-color mutations are not uncommon in the grape world. For instance, Chardonnay's parent grape, Pinot Noir has mutated to create the lighter, rose-skinned Pinot Gris variety. Pinot Gris has also further mutated to create Pinot Blanc or Pinot Bianco.

Other grape varieties, such as Riesling, have also mutated to produce variants of themselves. The rare Roter Riesling, is a pink-skinned variant of the traditionally light-skinned Riesling grape. Likewise, Tempranillo has spawned a light-skinned variant – Tempranillo Blanco.

Wines made from Chardonnay Rosé are extremely hard to come by.
