Ten Buttery Chardonnays for Under $20

Bringing you some feasible Friday fun with numbers…just in time for the weekend! Actually most of these wines are available for under $15, which is amazing considering the quality.

Fans of the buttery, creamy variety will enjoy these ‘Fab Chards’! I like mine fruity, but on the dry side, with hints of vanilla and oak of course!

Any fans of the new ‘un-oaked’ Chardonnay out there? I am curious if oak lovers find those enjoyable. I prefer these types with oak better.

Feel free to share some of your own great wine picks.

Have a wine-derful weekend all!

  1. Any Chard that describes its taste as any of the following , pineapple, pear, green apple. citrus , or grapefruit is NOT buttery!! Many on your list describe themselves in these ‘ fresh, bright’ terms. I want Buttery as in the style of 30 years ago. Where can I find any?

    • Hi James,

      I have good luck finding a them at Total Wine. They do a nice job of hanging signs with descriptions like buttery, creamy, oaky vs citrus, pineapple, unoaked. I will say I did find all of these to my liking despite the descriptions. At one point, Total Wine dedicated an entire encap dedicated to buttery vs citrus. I too avoid the citrus due to the acidicity that I find comes with it. You have inspired me to write a follow-up post of more buttery chards. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Please revise your list. I have tried all but one of the chards on your list and none of them is buttery anymore. The have all gone to the fruity tones.

  3. I suggest Santa Barbara’s Landing Chardonnay. You’ll find it at Trader Joe’s for $4.99. It’s buttery and a bit oaky (but not too much). Been drinking it for years.

  5. The J. Lohr Chard has changed for 2016 vintage and no longer has a creamy, buttery and vanilla flavor.
    It’s more acidic and minerally than before. But a couple to try are Muirwood about 12.00 at Total Wines and Buttercream also about 12.00 at T.W.
