ORIGIN

Chablis, situated near Auxerre in the Yonne department, is among the northernmost vineyards of Burgundy. It is characterized by producing exclusively white Chardonnay wines and by its geology which is believed to date back to the Kimmeridgian period.

The Petit Chablis are implanted on both sides of the Valley of Serein, at the top of the hill or the start of the plateau.
- Middle and upper Kimmeridgian soil and sub-soil. Brown and hard limestone terrain, sometimes loamy and sandy.
- Variable slope depending on the parcels.
- Variable exposure depending on specific parcels.
- Altitude of 230 m to 280 m.

VARIETAL

The Chardonnay is the only grape variety of the Chablis and Petit Chablis wines.

- At least 5500 feet/ha.
- Guyot and Chablis type pruning.
- Mechanical harvest.
- Yield of 60 hl/ha

CHARACTERISTICS AND ASSETS

The terrain on which the Petit Chablis vines are situated were, until the end of the 20th century, planted with grape varieties producing red wines. But it was a difficult time because the phylloxera decimated the vineyard, which was then replanted with Chardonnay grapes only a hundred years later. The vines are now coming to full maturity and offer wines that are fresh and pleasant.
