Chablis’ vineyards are completely set apart from the rest of Burgundy, giving them characteristics that are utterly distinctive. The unique terroir made of exogyrious marls originates from the Kimmeridgian era: it’s made of small oysters [exogyra virgula] that lived there when the sea covered the area and fossilized when the sea withdrew. It gives the wines their minerality and sharpness.
Pale gold, lovely brilliance and crystal clear. Extremely elegant. Predominant notes of fresh fruit (apple, pear and blackberry) with a slight hint of oak. Rich, well-balanced with apple and honey.
Perfect with oysters, fish, poultry, some types of exotic cuisine (japanese, indian) and goat cheeses.
