The grape of white Burgundy and Champagne is now grown with great success all over the world. It is remarkably adaptable to soil and climate, and will always produce a wine with fine rounded fruit that is balanced by good acidity. Whereas in Burgundy wines made from Chardonnay may need several years to be at their best, wines from the Midi show their fruit early and should be drunk within two years of the vintage.
