Chablis

Chablis, a mineral terroir that shows another side of Chardonnay

The vineyards of Chablis form a “wine island” of approximately 4,700 hectares surrounded by twenty Burgundian villages where only Chardonnay is grown. The appellation is located 150 km northeast of Dijon in the department of Yonne and has an enviable reputation thanks to its refreshing and long-lived style of white wine. Here, we find dry white wines with purity of flavours and minerals derived from a stony soil of clay and limestone rich in fossilized oysters. As in Champagne, spring frosts threaten the vines, but the challenging climate produces fascinating results.

A good Chablis wine is a pure delight. It has a yellow color with reflections of green, and scents of flint and citrus that, with age, evolve towards brioche, hazelnut, and butter – typical characteristics of the Kimmeridgian soil. In the mouth, there’s a harmonious and balanced combination of acidity and roundness of the body.
