The finest wineries of Chablis are waiting to be explored and the wines tasted in this exquisite region of Burgundy
Located near Auxerre in the department of Yonne, the wineries of Chablis is situated along a small river with the predestined name: the Serein. The first traces of vineyards in Chablis date back to Roman times. From the 12th century, the Cistercian monks knew how to develop their culture. Established in January 1938, the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée of this region confirmed the excellence of this dry white wine which, better than the wines of the other vineyards, has maintained its first rank thanks to a high quality grape variety: the Chardonnay, along its history.
Under its light, pale gold or green gold appearance, this white expresses a very fresh, lively and mineral nose; we find flint, green apple, lemon; with earthy and mushroom-like undertones. Notes of linden, mint and acacia are common, as are aromas of licorice and cut hay. The age makes it a little more golden and spicier. On the palate, its aromas keep their freshness for a long time. With its dry and perfect finesse, Chablis has a unique personality which has made it very recognizable all over the world. The word "Chablis" has long been usurped and is still sometimes. So be careful: there is only one true Chablis and it comes from this special wine region of Burgundy in France.
