The most recent list of Premiers Crus was issued in 1986. 79 hamlets figure on the list and cover a surface area of approximately 700 ha. The winegrowers of Chablis grouped together these hamlets under the names of 17 “climats” or single vineyards. These vineyards are located on either side of the Serein river in the communes of Chablis, Fontenay, Maligny, Chichée, La Chapelle-Vaupelpeigne, Courgis, Fleys, and Beines.
