Chablis is located well north of the rest of Burgundy. Some say that, though the Chardonnay grape is one of the most widely planted in the world, it is here, on the Kimmeridgian (and Portlandian) soil of Chablis, that it finds the greatest harmony with its terroir. The soil is named after the Dorset village of Kimmeridge, where one also finds this interesting geological formation. The village also gives its name to the period. Kimmeridgian soil is basically a mixture of limestone and clay with billions of tiny, fossilized oyster shells, hence the common recommendation to pair Chablis with shellfish.

The cool climate typically produces lean, steely, uniquely mineral wines that are capable of very long aging. Some producers use oak; some do not. Each has its defenders.

Chablis has seven Grands Crus. The are Les Clos, Blanchots, Bougros, Vaudesir, Valmur, Preuses, and Grenouilles. Then, there is La Moutonne, which is not officially a Grand Cru, but the general consensus is that it should Read more »

  • William Fevre Champs Royaux Chablis 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This generic Chablis from William Fevre is very fine indeed, with the focus and execution of a Premier Cru; the nose is of green apple and white pepper, and entry is smooth - though with a note of white pepper already mentioned. Clean as a whistle, this wine is highly recommended to those who love Chablis or wish to explore the AOC. 89-90. Read More

  • Fox, I disagree that Burgundy is for impressing your friends. Besides, ... need to brush up on Chablis, as that would be a big part of budget white Burgundy. Grand Cru Chablis often fits in to that $50-60 price point, which is where mid tier to upper mid tier CA is priced. As with plenty of CdN Villages, CdB 1ers, etc.   Read More
