Chablis confirms the excellence of a white wine that was, much more than other vineyards, able to maintain it’s ranking during the course off history thanks to high quality vine population (Chardonnay). The primary bedrock comes from Jurassic, more precisely kimméridgien about 150 million years ago, we can thus find tiny oyster deposits in the rocks, remains of the warm and shallow sea that then covered Burgundy.
