Can I find a chardonnay that I am going to like?

Can I find a chardonnay that I am going to like? I have had maybe a dozen in my life, generally staying with reds. I love traminers. I like Rhines, I have had cheap whites, and will do the occasional white zin.

Chardonnay, however, never seems dry and crisp like I expect. it has a heavy body, a fruityiness, and other qualities I like, but it ususally has a weird sort of component, and I always wonder if I have stored them too long, or improperly.

Can anyone suggest a chardonnay, eight bucks or less, that seems a little dryer, crisper, and less heavy handed on the stale fruit?

I just had a bottle of 2004 Century from Beulieau, and I have never had a beaulieye or whatever that name is, that disappointed me. The other ones have been from the table wine companies, or from the seen on TV labels.

I'd like to find a white to have with thanksgiving. my wife doesn't really like wines, and I'm tired of drinking alone at the table.

Keep in mind that I need to be able to find this in JOPLIN.
