One of the most famous white wines in the world, this is taut, mineral and crisp with fresh zesty acidity and a stony character making this the quintessential unoaked Chardonnay.
Chablis is in the northern part of Burgundy, half way between Dijon and Paris. The continental climate (very cold in winter and hot in the summer with frosts in spring) and the marly limestone soils combine to mould the unique steely character of Chablis wines. About 3500 hectares are planted (including 856ha of Premier and Grands Crus) with 100% chardonnay grapes.
This wine is fermented by different growers, mainly in vats and then aged in the Louis Jadot cellars between 9-12 months before bottling.
A cold, harsh winter and pleasant spring and early summer preceeded a cooler august producing great quality fruit and wines with lovely balance, aromatics and character.
