Chablis

Located less than 200km east of Paris, Chablis is technically a part of Burgundy, but being more than 150kms northwest of it, and with dramatically different soils and microclimates, it is better considered as a unique wine region rather than considering its Chardonnay in the same realm as that from the Cote de Beaune.  chablis-kimmeridgian-terroir.jpg

Petit Chablis encompasses a much larger, surrounding area than Chablis itself, whilst within Chablis there are seven grands crus totally just over 100 hectare - just a skerric of the entire Chablis AC.  There are some 40 premiers crus identified, whilst the total classified land area of Chablis is presently just over 5,000 hectares.

Great Chablis - particularly grands crus from top vintages - have a surprising ability to age, with few hitting their peak in less than a decade and the best lasting several decades.  Aged Chablis tends to take on a richness and power unhinted at in its youth.

Chablis remains terrific value, especially in the context of white Burgundy pricing.
