Chablis

 

 

Wine Region

Chablis : Considered part of Burgundy, Chablis is, in fact, situated close to the northern limit of France's wine growing regions, closer to Champagne than to the rest of Burgundy. The vineyards are lower in the valley than those of Champagne and thus are more vulnerable to damage by spring frosts, but they enjoy the benefits of the same soil - a mixture of chalk and bituminous clay which gives the wines their clean, flinty, delicate flavour. The region is a network of small land holders producing limited volumes. The most refined of all Chardonnay-based wines Chablis are among the driest and palest of France's white wines. Lurking beneath a very subtle bouquet reminiscent of freshly scythed grass, is wine with considerable body and a clean, pebbly flavour.
