The wines of Chablis are made from one single varietal : Chardonnay. They are sub-divided into four appellations : Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis 1er Cru, Chablis Grand Cru
These are identified by precisely delimited production zones, and are subject to strict production regulations.
Chablis wines are dry white wines which are characterized by their purity, crispness, sophistication and minerality. The Chardonnay varietal gives results in Chablis unlike anywhere else. It draws its personality and character from a subsoil that is 150 million years old, and ripens in ideal conditions, in a semi-continental climate, which allow it to attain a good balance between sugar levels and acidity.
