Located near Auxerre in the Yonne department, the Chablis vineyards line a small river appropriately named Serein. The Cistercian monks of Pontigny Abbey started growing vines here in the 12th century. The Chablis AOC status was created in January 1938, confirming the excellent qualities of this dry white wine, which, despite the wines of some other regions, has held its leading place throughout its history thanks to the high quality of its raw material - the Chardonnay grape.
Storage potential: 5 to 8 years.
