"Chablis and the surrounding region produce great dry white wines with a mineral accent, which enjoy international acclaim...
Mid-way between Beaune and Paris, the Chablis winegrowing region stretches over around 20 communes. Nestled among the valleys and wooded hilltops, the vineyards cover the hillsides running alongside the pretty Serein Valley. The vines sink their roots deep into the clay-limestone soil, drawing on them for their characteristic mineral aromas, to the delight of Chablis drinkers.
Here, Chardonnay reigns supreme. It is used for all Chablis wines and has made them famous around the world. The most highly prized among them is Chablis Grand Cru, with its green-gold color and perfect balance between liveliness, dryness and acidity.
You will also appreciate Chablis Premier Cru wines. This appellation encompasses a wide range of aromas from the most mineral to the most floral. Chablis wines are very dry, and stand out with their freshness and sophistication. Petit Chablis are wines rich in aromas of white blossom and citrus and are light and full of life." - Bourgogne Wines
