The Chablis vineyards are some of the oldest in France. Over many years, the exceptional reputation of the white wines, produced from Chardonnay grapes, has spread to all four corners of the world. Cultivated on both banks of the river Serein, the vines of the appellation encompass seventeen villages. The unique character of the wines originates in the predominantly Kimmeridgian soil where we find sediment composed of large quantities of fossilised oysters called exogyra virgula.
This exceptional soil, which is found in a few other places throughout the world, gives the terroir its minerality, finesse, and incomparable crystalline tonality.
