Chablis is Burgundies most northernly wines producing region and I often find quite miss understood by the consumer and often just sold because of its reputation rather than its quality.

In this months selection you will find two bottles one straight Chablis and one Premier Cru. Please taste them and think about the wines.

Quick Pointers on Chablis

'I don't like Charonnay, please can I have a bottle of Chablis.' is a statement I hear often in the shop. When quizzing the customer further they have often had a bad experience with a heavily oak style of a cheaper Chardonnay which can put people off the grape for life. Basically, Chablis by law has to be made with Chardonnay, and i feel can be classed as the purest expression of this grape variety.

When shopping for Chablis, look out for the four styles but watchout for Petit Chablis.

Petit Chablis - This can be the suspect area catergory. The fruit comes from the soils which lack the stong limstone content elsewhere.  This is the Chablis that is often overprices and is trading on the Chablis name.

Chabls (In your Case) - This comes from bettervoineyard locations that enables the wine to extract the purest flavours from the soils. This is perhaps Burgundy's most import appellation in terms of quaility.

Premier Crus (In your Case) - Now you are shopping by vineyard name. There are some 40 vineyards that ave this status and it is all to do with the limesone makeup of the soil and the vineyard elevation. in your case we have poped in our example from, Vau de Vey.

Grand Cru Chablis - This accounts for less than 3% of Chablis production and the are located in a single band just above the town of Chablis. There are only seven Grand Crus which have a global repuation, so this of course effect the price.
