Chardonnay – Yes, Chardonnay! – for Summer …

In the summer heat, we often say ixnay to the chardonnay, preferring

altogether. This week and next, in my Washington Post wine columns, I
recommend some terrific chardonnays for summer dining. The key? They are
unoaked, with great acidity and moderate alcohol levels.

the southern end of Burgundy. Next week – Chablis in the north.
