Vineyard Info

Our winery groups nearly 300 winegrowers who produce the great white wines of Chablis. These wines reflect the utmost care our winegrowers devote to the cultivation of their vineyards and the commitment our winemakers bring to revealing the heart and soul of the wines. It is this subtle harmony between the grower in the vineyards, the technical advisor and the winemaker which bestows on our wines their much sought-after distinction. This Chablis comes from Chardonnay growing on both sides of the River Serein in the clay and limestone soils deriving from Kimmeridgian geological times. This "classic" wine provides the typical style that winelovers expect from the appellation.
