Chablis

One of the world’ most famous white wines, and coming from a strictly-controlled area around the town of Chablis – about 180 kilometres southeast of Paris. Rather misleadingly, in the U.S.A, chablis has became the general term for any dry white wine.
Chablis is made from the Chardonnay grape, and is un-oaked in the main. Wines come in various forms, the most basic being Petit Chablis (which is designed to be drunk young) through bottles simply labelled Chablis to superior Premier Cru & the most sought after Grand Cru – both of which need bottle age.
For the latter, the vineyards of Blachots, Bougros, Grenouille, Preuses, Valmur & Vaudésir and considered to be amongst the best.
