The Chablis region is located on the Northern part of Bourgogne, 180 km away from Paris, going South East, Chablis vineyards cover 5600 hectares over 18 villages. Composed 100% of Chardonnay grape variety, Chablis terroir takes its unique typicity from a soil called ”Kimméridgien” made of layers of clay and limestone 240 million year-old and keeping in its layers ammonites and fossilized oysters (exogyra virgula) that give to Chablis terroir its unique character and to its wines minerality, purity and flavors less fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates. These wines often have a "flinty" note, and sometimes as "steely".
The amount of barrel maturation, if any, is a stylistic choice which varies widely among Chablis producers. Many Grandand Premier Cruwines receive some maturation in oak barrels, but typically the time in barrel and the proportion of new barrels is much smaller than for white wines of Cote de Beaune.
