When is a Chardonnay not a Chardonnay?

When it tastes like something else.

Let me explain.

Having bought a bottle of Mâcon Villages from a large supermarket I opened it to find it tasted nothing like Chardonnay. It seemed more like Sauvignon blanc.

It wasn't just me. My son, who knows a thing or two about wine, found it tasted 'different' too.

Can we trust what it says on the label (the word 'Chardonnay' was proudly emblazoned on the front of the bottle), or is the horse meat misidentification scandal now affecting wine?

Anyone else found similar 'different' tasting wines?
