Chablis is in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris.
The continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) and the marly limestone soils make the character of Chablis wines unique.
About 3500 hectares are planted (including 856 ha of Premiers and Grands crus) with 100% Chardonnay grapes.
Chablis premiers crus are produced on 40 different ‘lieux-dits".
This wine is fermented in wooden barrels like all our Grands Crus from the Côte d'Or area, and then aged in barrels during 15-16 months before bottling.
Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy
Very limpid, the Chablis 1er Cru is a typical wine from this area, perhaps a bit less rich than the others, but more tight.
It will perfectly match fish in sauce, « charcuteries », white meats, snails, shell-fishes, goat cheese...
This Chablis will be very nice drunk within 2-3 years but will also be able to age 10-15 years if kept in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
