Wines of Chablis
Arguably the most uniquely tasting Chardonnay in the world, most people are blown away to discover this special type of Chardonnay for the first time. The cool climate region produces wines with more acidity and less fruit flavours, but a unique flinty note derived from the soils.
Although considered a part of the Burgundy wine region, Chablis is closer in distance to Champagne which it shares an exceedingly rare and unique soil with. Kimmeridgian soil is not found anywhere else in the world except in southern England, Champagne and Chablis. A 180-million-year-old geologic formation of decomposed clay and limestone, containing tiny fossilized oyster shells, this soil type produces wines full of minerality, salinity, intensity, and finesse.
In Chablis they use a similar ranking system to that of Burgundy. From Grand Crus at the top, to Premier Crus, to Chablis and Petit Chablis at the bottom.
