The Chablis terroir is characterized by its purity, freshness, and minerality, making Chardonnay wines that are highly regarded for their elegance and ability to reflect the unique geological and climatic features of the region. It's a prime example of how terroir can profoundly influence the character of wines.


  • Chablis has a rich winemaking history dating back to Roman times, with the region's viticultural heritage evolving over centuries.


  • The hallmark of Chablis is its Kimmeridgian soil, a mix of limestone, clay, and fossilized oyster shells. This unique soil composition imparts a distinctive minerality to the wines.

Wine Characteristics
