Chablis. There are few more obvious examples of vineyard to glass taste transfer than when drinking the wines from this idyllic village, representing the most northern point of France's Burgundy region.
Located in a sedimentary basin, this low-lying zone was once under ocean which is evident to this today as one can freely walk around the vineyards picking up fossilised seashells lodged in the topsoil. The soil here is 150 million years old and called Kimmeridgian limestone. This unique soil type along with its far northern location result in wines that are fresh and bright, bristling with racy green apple and citrus character and framed by brisk acidity.
Purity and minerality define these wines made from 100% Chardonnay and if you are looking for a food pairing, the clues are in the soils!
