Question: Is the chardonnay grape called by another name in Chablis?

Answer: Yes the same wine grapes often go by different names. For example tempranillo often is called tinto del pais or tinto fino locally in the Ribera Del Duero region. Similarly chardonnay in Chablis sometimes goes by the local name BEAUNOIS. Also highly recommended as a reference is Wine Grapes by Jancis Robinson, Julia Harding, and Jose Vouillamoz for extensive coverage of 1368 vine varieties used to make wine from around the world.
