Chablis is the northernmost region of Burgundy, located in a dramatic circle of hills where vines have been planted for hundreds of years. In the sixties, when the Chablis vineyards were all but abandoned, Robert Drouhin recognized the potential of this region which had been ravaged by phylloxera a century before. He was one of the first Burgundy proprietaires who set about revitalizing the area. The pebbly soil derives from Jurassic (mainly Kimmeridgian) clays and limestones. It is ideally suited to the Chardonnay grape, the only permitted variety for Chablis AOCs.
