Chablis

Located in the northern region of Burgundy in France, only a two hour drive southeast from Paris, Chablis is a wine region covering an area of approximately 2,225 hectares.

Like most of France’s oldest wine regions, the Romans were the first to have planted grapevines in Chablis and during the middle ages the Catholic Church too played a big role in building commercial interest in wines from the area. It is believed that chardonnay was first planted in the 12th century and spread throughout the rest of Burgundy from there. Chablis was annexed as a part of Burgundy by the Dukes of Burgundy in the 15th century.

The famous grapevines of Chablis are mostly made up of Chardonnay and because of the cool climate of the area, the wines produced here are usually more acidic and less fruity than those made in warmer climates. The result gives the flinty, dry white wines aromas comprising of nuts, vanilla, butter, lemon, and pear. Unlike most of the other Burgundian white wines which are fermented in a barrel, Chablis winemakers rarely use this method of fermentation in order to keep the oaky flavours at bay. The Chablis vineyards are classified into 4 tiers of quality listed from high to low: Chablis Grand Cru, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis and finally Petit Chablis. The wines of Chablis generally see less oak than their Burgundian counterparts and in many cases are fermented in stainless steel.
