As well as having a single Chardonnay grape variety, our vineyards are planted on soil that is 150 million years old, from the Jurassic, or to be exact, the Kimméridgien, era. During this period, Burgundy was under the sea, which has left us a number of remains to be found in the rock, such as small oysters and ammonites. The fundamental characteristic of Chablis depends on its soil, or ‘terroir’, that gives it the typical minerality that cannot be found anywhere else. The dry, clear, aromatic, lively and light nature of Chablis, which no other Chardonnay wine can match, is due to the link uniting the grape variety to its soil.
