Chablis

The village of Chablis gives its name to one of the most famous white wine in France. Chablis is located at the north of the Burgundy region.

Chablis wine is made of Chardonnay grape. Over there people called it Beaunois,taking the name from the close-by wine region of Beaune. Chardonnay grow on a limestone soil rich with fossils and specially oysters. A long time ago, a sea covered Burgundy and Chablis.

Chablis wine is brisk and fruity, very dry and with a refreshing acidity. In the nose, there are flavors of green apple and lemon. In the mouth Chablis delivers aromas of vanilla, lemon and linden.

When older, Chablis has a golden color and is more spicy.

Chablis is recommended with grilled fish but is also a good companion with white meat and even curry or tandoori.
