The most recent list of Chablis premier crus was established in 1986. Seventy-nine place names were listed there covering an area of some 700 hectares. The winegrowers of Chablis organized these into 17 “umbrella” vineyards. The vines are planted along the valley of the Serein river in the communes of Chablis, Fontenay, Maligny, Chichée, La Chapelle-Vaupelteigne, Courgis, Fleys and Beines.
The 27 hectares of Vaucoupin’s vines are located on the right bank of the Serein river in the commune of Chichée.
