Oaked Chardonnay assignment

danna | May 13, 2009 05:35 AM

I received the following in response to my "what shall I bring?" query:

"Hi, thanks. If you like, bring a bottle of Syrah or Chardonnay. We normally avoid the latter, but it was recommended for the chicken that's going on the grill (specifically an oaked one)."

Although i'd rather drink Syrah, i thought it might be fun to take on the chardonnay challenge. I , too, have avoided Chardonnay for lo, these last 10 years, so I don't have any personnal knowledge to go on. Also, the hostess is a francophile, but I'm under the impression most French Chards have less oak than that right?

looking forward to your thougths...
