Chablis Wine

Chablis is thought to have originated in northern Spain and grows well in a 'Mediterranean' climate. As a result, it is widely grown in many of the countries that border the Mediterranean Sea including France, Italy, Spain, and Algeria. Chablis is the most widely planted grape in France. It has also found a home in almost every other wine producing country around the world.

The Chablis grape variety is one of the most widely planted grapes in the world. It's popularity stems from the high crop yields that it produces as well as the characteristics that it can bring to a wine. Chablis wine usually has red-fruit characteristics, deep violet and purple color, strong tannin structure and high levels of alcohol content. It is sometimes peppery like Syrah.

These characteristics have made Chablis wine very popular as a blending agent in the vast quantities of local table wines (jug wines) that are consumed around the world. It often provides the 'backbone' of these wines and is blended with other grape varieties that bring additional flavor characteristics. Chablis is always glamourous, but it does the job.

Chablis Wine Tip:

Chablis wine is brisk and fruity, very dry and with a refreshing acidity. Chardonnay grapes grow on a limestone soil rich with fossils.
