Chablis Premier Cru Climats

Are you left bank or right bank ?

During the Homecoming in New York and Los Angeles with the wines of Bourgogne, we invite you to discover the Climats of the Chablis Premier Cru appellation, from one bank of the Serein river to the other.

 

On paper, Chablis is simple to comprehend: a single grape variety, Chardonnay, a single color, white, and four appellations: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru, Chablis Grand Cru.

 

Behind this seemingly simple scheme of things is a richly diverse reality. The Chablis Premier Cru appellation illustrates this beautifully. Comprised of 40 Climats spread over both the right and left banks of the Serein river, it expresses the nuances of the Chablis terroir, notably because of the differing types of exposure to the sun, and their influence on the wines.

 

From one riverbank to the other, come discover or rediscover the secrets of the Chablis Climats through a tasting of ten selected Chablis Premier Cru wines.
