@raccoon81 Sure. Champagne grapes are the best for this, although I’ve only tried CA and WA varieties. I’ve also had some early Merlot grapes, and was startled to realize that they tasted of Merlot. I’ve tried Cabernet Franc, and disliked it, but then, I don’t like Cabernet Franc wine either (not even blended into something else).
I’ve had a few generic whites, but I don’t remember which ones, and it’s been a LOT of years. Since I seldom drink the whites, I wouldn’t be a good judge as to whether they had any special characteristics of the wines made from them.
@raccoon81 To be clear, the Champagne grapes I’ve tried are Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. I’ve tried Chardonnay grapes, but they’re too sweet, and lack character. Then again, I don’t like Chardonnay wine, so there’s that.
