One of the purest expressions of the Chardonnay grape, Chablis wines will keep your festive season fresh and lively.
During winter months where heavy reds are most often poured, wake up your palate without exhausting your wallet with Chablis’ crisp white wines. In Chablis, Bourgogne’s most northern region, Chardonnay vines sink their roots deep into clay-limestone soil, which, combined with the region’s cool-climate, is what gives its wines the lively, mineral-driven, bone-dry qualities Chablis drinkers love. Indeed, Chablis’ wines, compared with other Chardonnay wines, strike a precious balance in taste between fresh and fruitful, making all the elegance and finesse of Chablis wines.
Typically low in alcohol, these will enliven your taste buds, while lending themselves beautifully to a variety of dishes. From Petit Chablis to Chablis Grand Cru, the wines of Chablis offer a wide range of aromatic profiles and expressions to suit simple gatherings among friends or more formal occasions (when allowed). There is a Chablis wine to suit every occasion!
And when we will be allowed to hit the road again, the small village itself also deserves some exploring – it is a pretty place with some attractive medieval houses, some with ornate door and window openings, and a few other buildings of interest to discover.
