Millions of years ago, the area around what's now the small town of Chablis was covered by sea. In the Jurassic era, the sediment-enriched clay of the Chablis region began to form and it's this clay that gives Chablis wine its unique elegance, freshness and complexity.

What typically characterizes Chablis wines?They are naturally relatively sinewy, high in acidity and steely rather than luscious and oaky.An archetypally refreshing, long-lived style of white wine which very few wine regions, possibly none other than Chablis, can produce.
