Chablis Press Kit 2021

 

While many Appellations d’Origine Contrôlée (AOCs) in France and the Old World can be tricky to grasp, Chablis is a relatively straightforward region, with its winemakers using only the Chardonnay grape to produce still, dry white wines. Chablis wines are therefore not only exceptional, but also easy to understand: characteristic of their unique terroir, excellent in their value and unrivalled in the world of cool-climate Chardonnay, and has become a reference for Chardonnay producers across the world.

 

A part of the wider Bourgogne winegrowing area, Chablis is home to four tiers of AOC: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and Chablis Grand Cru whose winemakers produce wines of a significant diversity, but always elegant and of excellent quality.
