Better Than Just Chablis

The Chablis Premier Cru appellation is one of the Chablis appellation, located in Burgundy, central East of France.

The region is strictly limited to 79 cadastral locations, authorized to regroup in 17 climates totaling 7.7 square kilometers of surface. The vineyard on the Serein river’s left bank forms small islets, alongside the vineyards of Chablais Grand Cru on its right bank. 

But each climate has its typicality and gives the wines a well-marked personality. The producers feared the spring frosts of this continental climate because they come to thwart the blooming buds. They then develop processes to warm the atmosphere of vineyards (heaters and sprinklers).

Expression of Complex Aromas

As with all Chablis wines, only one variety, Chardonnay, is used to produce these high-quality whites (approximately 4,315,000 liters each year). Each wine deserves to be described according to its climate, but it is possible to say that in general, their dress is pale gold and that they are long in the mouth and structured. The aromas are complex and require to express themselves fully, a little aeration. Marked by an intense minerality in their youth, these wines develop a more nuanced aroma of flowers over time.
