Blason de Bourgogne Chablis 2008
From http://www.blason.com.au No other grape vines can lay claim to such belief in geology. Influenced by the multitude of minuscule oyster shells (Exogyra virgule) which are intimately bound to the marl and chalky marl soils of the vineyards, the words Chablis, Chardonnay and Kimmeridgian are intimately linked. Chablis draws its incomparable mineral style from these soils and sub-soils with all its sap. The most northern vineyards of Burgundy impart a unique, bracing climate. Consequently we find a freshness and lightness in Chablis that have always been a synonym for dry white wine…par excellence.
