Chablis is now synonymous with Chardonnay . The area is located north of Burgundy, near the Champagne region, and this geographical element greatly characterizes the final product. This means that the personality of Chardonnay is expressed with a typical character, well distinct from that of the rest of Burgundy, where Chablis is found. The traditional production philosophy wants an exclusive use of steel and glass, without any passage in wood, a dominant feature of the opulent chardonnays of the Côte de Beaune, for example. The harsh climatic conditions and the particular composition of the soil give the wines of Chablis that typical mineral, fresh and incredibly recognizable character which have made it famous throughout the world as the "Chardonnay come from the cold", a splendid white wine, which you can find on this page at Best price. The AOC, Appellation d'Origine contrôlée, is divided into four sub-denominations, at the top of which is the Chablis Grand Cru , followed by the Chablis Premier Cru , the Chablis and finally the Petit Chablis . Near Chablis is the Côte d'Auxerre , noteworthy for the cultivation of a native vine that cannot be found elsewhere: the césar .
