Chablis is French for Chardonnay

Chablis is a Chardonnay making wine region in the northwest corner of Burgundy, France. The rare use of oak-aging gives the wines a distinctive, fresh and mineral style with a leaner fruit profile and fine detail. Relatively cheaper than their Burgundian cousins, the Chardonnay from Chablis is growing in popularity but you can find great bargains if you like your whites zippy and zesty.
